Maddeningly close!

Despite having to rip out a whole border last week, I feel crazy close to finishing this monster! After re-stitching the ripped out border,  I completed the bottom alphabet and most of a corner motif.


And I'm getting there!  If only my life would get the heck out of my way...


Happily, I have some little kits from my Kansas girls and they provide a nice break when I'm jonesing for a finish.  This design is a freebie from the Sunflower Seed.  I love the fabric, and if I know my friend Judy, it's a PTP fabric!


I wish I had more time to visit with you all today, but I'm having one of those weeks where I catch my moments for myself as they come.  And even if they're small moments, I'm grateful for them. 

And there goes my phone!  Catch you later....

  11. Hello!

    I really love your blog. I am especially taken with the red and pink sampler that you call "the never ending sampler"! What is the name of that sampler and which company is it from? I hope you finish it because it truly is beautiful. By the way, you have a lovely family also.
