It Is DONE!!!! Happy Dance

In the end I hated doing this piece. It started out so much fun and it was so cute. The cuteness deceived me! I made so many mistakes and did so much improvising it isn't even funny! Yet I would do another piece from the book but give myself more time. I rushed through this and even feel the stitching is sloppy. Why send it, because I did put in so many hours and hopefully it will work well into the quilt. Jeanie may have to redo the shoes.
Now I'm anxious to go back to the butterfly piece which I really enjoy and is clicking with me and start the barnyard babies.
Sadly two members of our family lost members of their own family the past two weeks. Wendy first lost her grandfather last week, Then yesterday her step father who raised her died after battling cancer the last few months. And Sunday my nieces husband's grandfather died.
Our Pastor and his wife are on vacation this week but one of the things they are doing is making a CD down in Memphis. They have good singing voices. Char especially, so we'll see how it goes for them. At this point they have no intentions of changing careers.
Well....until next time Happy Stitching!
