Those flowers are so delicate and beautiful

Nancy in IL said...

JP is so overwhelming, your little sections are wonderful to view, and such a lot of progress on such an ambitious project. Question: did you ever gather enough fiber to finish this lovely project?

I need some encouragement to get my blog running again. I'm really working very hard at getting all my photo albums on the web consolidated, then I think I'll give the blog another go-round.

Love you!

As usual I'm behind on my reading, so I had to go back several weeks to catch up on your blog. It sounds like you've had quite the adventures with your neighbors and your mom's health issues, along with your own. I'm glad she and you seem to be doing better. JG is looking wonderful with all the work you've been doing.
