On April 11, 2008 I received a pattern in the mail. Last night - I put all but the last border on my version of that pattern.
I am not quite ready to share my photos of the project - though a few of my Instagram followers did get a sneak peek when I was asking for advice. Lets just say it looks NOTHING like the original pattern.
This was a project that I collected fabrics for over a long period of time - they were my travel squares, my shop hop buys, and my memories of my adventures.
Working on this again after a long hiatus has been a walk down memory lane... and I am finishing it in a way that is reflecting some more recent memories -some happy, some sad, but all of them treasured.
Maybe that is why this one has taken so long - it needed more memories to make it complete.
