It's true. When it was time to flip it over and continue on the backside, I procrastinated. Not a good thing.
But then at the beginning of 2015, I decided it was time to finish. I am determined to finish this year. So I sat many hours by the fireside and stitched.
Then I stopped again.
But here I am in June stitching. I finished the log cabin middle section. My plan was to create a fence-like border around the log cabin using Grandpa's shirt sleeves. I wanted them to look different so I did not run them through a green dye pot.
You may remember when I started the backside using the shirt backs, I told you, "always know that GP's got your back". I thought a lot about that when I started the border fence with the shirt sleeves. Things like, now GP's got his arms around you. And I thought a lot about fencing things in or out and how symbolic that seems. I thought about borders and boundaries.
I know, crazy Nana again. But do remember he is strong and I hope you will always feel his love as if his arms are really around you.
