I surprised myself by really enjoying the hand stitching on this piece. And I am choosing fabrics out of my usual colour scheme, and I think it has worked quite well. I've listed the quiltie on ebay here, it reads "You don't need anyone but yourself".
I was asked, along with many others, to make a condolence ATC for a member of a Yahoo group whose 40 year-old son died suddenly - so very sad. It wasn't an easy task.
