in the hoop!


managed to locate the quilting frame so this could get on the road to being finished.  on the left are a couple of my fancy marking tools...have marked this with small/med/large intersecting circles to offset the angles of the spools.  will be good to have a finish while the UFO list languishes... *** file this away in the "older but wiser" category...when a single parent and way overburdened with too many hats that were all important, sometimes promised things that could not be delivered.  people were disappointed and probably even angry, but so many times situations arose that could not be set aside or delayed.  even though they pop up in my mind occasionally, must resign myself to accept things that cannot be remedied at this point; that's the way it is now too, just muddle through until the situation changes, so with that in mind, this one little finish is a big deal.  soon will be able to tackle the other UFOs...it's all i can do.  now back to regularly scheduled fun!

  2. Grace, this is darling! I spy some Kate Spain! Such a cute little finish.
    I know how you feel about the past. Sometimes it is best to just move on. Don't forget however, that anyone who loves or cares about you understood and understands those mitigating circumstances. Like you, I struggle with the past. I know how you feel. Big Hugs! Now I am treating myself to a peak at your other accomplishments over the last several weeks. Much Love,
    Denise W.
