I am not ahead...I am behind


Elizabeth at Creative Breathing had a garland along.

She posted a tutorial last summer on her blog. I started right away. I had 75% done.

The project came to a halt.
I vowed it would not be an unfinished project.
Although it looks like I'm ahead for next Christmas, I am so behind.
It took 10 months to finish this garland. It didn't take me that much time to make it.
It just took me that much time to commit to finish it.
Hooray for finished projects,
(~~)

Hi Julie. I just popped in from Elizabeth's and she's so right, your garland did turn out perfectly cute. I have been meaning to START my own garland from her tutorial for almost a year now. Still not there. I love yours.
