What great choices to stitch, and so many finish's, lucky you, I am only able to keep one or two projects going, or my mind might blow up giggles.
Congratulations too your Granddaughter, time does fly by so quickly.
What a lucky group of Ladies, to have a friendship going for so many years after graduation.
