You have completed section 17

We have one more section to go.  Isn't that exciting?  I'm not sure what I will do with my Saturday mornings after this is finished.  Maybe I will get back to working on my blog.  Maybe I will keep up with the typing on my designs once a week instead.  Maybe I will enjoy the quiet of my house before everyone gets out of bed, just me and the dogs with my coffee.  Maybe another bout of insanity will hit and I'll plan another months long project.  I really am not sure.


As always, please take a moment to stitch in all your ends and take a few pretty pictures.


Please remember this pattern is my original design and is protected by copyright.  It is and will be available only on my website.
