Hey, that is something.

I do have a question for you. Did you start this in 1998 or 1988?  Huh The dates are different but I bet it is 1988? Especially since you have a daughter getting ready to turn 18?

It was 1988, I must go back and change that...thanks for the pointing that out. It was a long long long time in the making!

I am curious, are there any shiny bits of fabric in there? Like from a ball gown?  Grin

not shiny shiny...but there are some silky satiny ones, which could come from cocktail type dresses...

KUDOS to you!  Ancient WIPS NEVER go away, the guilt I carry from them languishing just festers.  I try to enjoy them as art even unfinished, and remind myself that the process IS the art, but it's so great to put a project to bed!  Congrats on finishing it even if you weren't in love with it.

you are so right!...and it is amazing how much satisfaction 'unburdening' yourself of that guilt brings. Even if you don't love the result...

thanks

You go girl!  I have one that's 90% hand quilted since about the same time.  LOL  Carpal tunnel is keeping me from tackleing the finish.  Guess my daughter will inherit this UFO. Grin
