This is the last day of selfish sewing week.  However, my last day of selfish sewing was Friday.  I came undone with a project that fought me for completion.  The project won.  I will tackle it when I regain strength and perseverance.  I retreated to embroidering a baby quilt for charity.  Handwork is such a comfort after experiencing bobbin woes and fabric fights!

Yesterday we celebrated the life of a friend who passed last weekend.  Dottie was 89 years old.  Her life was dedicated to the least of us, she fought for social justice and supported the arts throughout her years.  Her example continues to inspire me.  Farewell, selfish sewing.  Farewell, selfless Friend.  Jessica Pearl
