Four years and many days later...............................
And the Hapless Homemaker takes her curtain call.
It is a feat, not of artistry or skill, but of sheer triumph over procrastination. Celtic Woman and The Puppini Sisters gave me strength during the patchwork stitching. Many half-hours of lonely thought brought me through tying it. Hymns and conversation carried me through the binding of it. And it was about to be laid away with only two-thirds of the binding to go were it not for the company of Miss Flop and her crocheting. Now that it's finished, I see the great potential for this project.
It makes a good burka.
(Though it's at its heart a kite-wannabe, flying away in the breeze.)
And it still manages to be a good quilt. Comfy, Floppeth?
Another triumph: We scoured Wal-Mart and Goodwill and found some t-shirts. And some splendiforous flowing skirts. It was then that Flop admitted she loved being my sister - after I paid for it all.
