Huge mountain climbed by Jean

Some projects are easy to do.  Some projects we begin and then find we're not enjoying the process.  The Friendship quilt project 2009 was one of those projects for Jean.  She picked fabrics she loved and embarked on the project with many other girls but about half way through, she decided it just wasn't fun anymore.  She threw it in the cupboard!  Can anyone relate to that?!  She moaned about it occasionally to friends but it stayed in the cupboard.  She gave away the remainder of the fabrics.  She wasn't going to finish it.  All the other other girls in the Friendship project completed their projects with some amazing results.  2012...Jean decided that maybe she could do something with it.  I am so proud of her.  She got it out and completed the quilt top but wouldn't show it to anyone.  She really doesn't like it.  This week, she brought it to class...QUILTED.  And the quilting is beautiful.  All she needs to do now is bind it.  She has climbed a BIG mountain.  Many of her class friends wanted to take it off her hands but Jean is going to gift it to her mum for Christmas...lucky mum.  Well done Jean!
