Stash and Project Update

A few days ago, a couple of cousins on my mom’s side came to visit.  It was a fantastic visit as I had not seen either of them for at least 50 years!  Anyhow … one of them quilts, and when she saw my very messy creative sewing room, she asked how many projects I had going at one time.    Just off the cuff, I said, “5.”   Um … well, I didn’t really take a good look at what I had actively going in the room  … and of course, it’s the reason for the MESS CREATIVITY.

I’m totally fine with that and it’s DONE!!!  In the end, I like the echoed swirls and echoed teardrops – it gives it a nice texture.  (another UFO bites the dust!)
