Project Joy #3: Perseverance

       I can't believe this one is done. I made it late last February just as a means of using up strip sets and playing around with another neutral color-the tans and khakis. The process of finishing it with all the machine issues just about made me give up on it. But I left in the areas of stitching that were less than average and a bit wavy. I had fought with it in areas that left it even more wavy when finished. Or it ended up that way because I densely quilted it ( six spools of thread later ) or strip sets just stretch. But it the end , it is done.

And done is all that matters today.

    Can you tell I'm excited?   Happy sewing, my friends!


  1. It looks nice now that it's done. The colors are good too, the neutrals give the eye a chance to rest. Good job on persevering!
