World Champions!

This is not an end to the story - but a beginning of this year's story.   After last night, I am ready to start telling it.  And it is the biggest of all as I have hinted in the recent two posts.

There are days when you muse - in a perfect world - THIS is what would happen.  That dream combination of people...that perfect emotional story that would be retold over and over again and sounds like a clasic sports movie.  If it were to happen what would have been the best way possible?

It DID Happen!

It is almost like a nine-part Star Wars Epic.  One year for each movie.  

We are exhausted.  We are ecstatic.  We still are in shock. We are so blessed.  It was the best night of these kids lives (so far...)

Latest Progress on Caskets!

I am continuing to do my stitch-along where I am working both a tent stitch double casket and a stump work casket at the same time.

The tent stitch one has progressed to the front of the casket and I now have only the back and the two doors left to go!! I will be done with it this year for sure.

The other casket is the Harmony with Nature casket and I just finished the front of the casket, two lessons ahead of the where the class is currently.  I just have the back and the top to go and this one will be finished.  I am trying to get it done this year or by the end of the summer if I can so I can run the full project class of this piece.  Hard to tell from the far away photo - but this piece is really, really 3-dimentional.  The tulip and rose must come out of the fabric over 3/4" and the lion is so cool.
