proceeded by a "timely" commercial. I love the advertising from this period in America's history. American, rising to the challenge, hanging in there, waiting for things to get better, coping with the shortages. These days our economic landscape has similar shadows for many. I'm a huge fan of "Project Runway", and in Tim Gunn's best words..."Make it work"!! Many times with UFOs, you have to stretch yourself to make it work. Today I'm sharing the first project of my challenge to finish.
Yes, this is it. Not a big deal, I know. It's a memory quilt, made from shirts of a friends DH. The person who collected the shirts and sent them was slow in doing so. And I was slower yet in getting started. Jump to the end of story. The wife died unexpectedly(massive and fatal heart attack while living alone)and a memory quilt never arrived. Unsure of what to do,it sat here. It was on my list last year and didn't get finished. That is changing. It needs pinning, quilting and binding and will then travel to MI to one of the adult children of these friends. Altho it's a small project compared to some, I need a "FINISH" in October. Gotta get one under my belt! How about you?
