sewing: quilted flag

My sewing has slowed way down this year, I’m not sure why. I guess it’s because my interests cycle through different things. I work on something for a while, then move on to something else that seems more challenging. Then I moved back to the first thing, when enough time has passed that it seemsContinue reading “sewing: quilted flag”
