I really love that hardanger!!! I see you had silk painting on your list. I still have a Chinese brush painting kit I've never opened. I am just so bad at painting that I think my attempts will be pathetic.

Don't be too hard on yourself. It's been a busy month, you were working away, and other stress to deal with. YOu've made progress, and been able to cross things off the list. You've accomplished a lot this year, it's amazing
