There are days you read a great story that is a counterpoint to the hate spewing these days. So since it is regarding embroidery - I have to pass it on!
The story is about a stitcher who is a 'finisher' - she likes to finish all her projects lest she go to self described 'project purgatory' after she dies. So she also feels strongly about some unfinished embroidery projects she finds in yard sales.
Can you believe it? Often she buys others UFOs to finish! So she came upon a beautiful embroidery of the USA and its state flowers that was finished and bought it for nothing. Then in the next rooms was a bin with the squares for a planned quilt of embroidered states and she cried.
She bought it and has now organized 100 people to finish the quit for Rita, who died recently at 99, so she can rest in peace.
Read the full story - its a good one!
