La Passion – The Eternal Work In Progress

I realize I haven't posted an update on this project in quite a while.  I alternate working diligently every day for a week or so, then lose interest and do other things.  Keeping at it is a real struggle lately, especially since I am getting busy with my quilting business.  I had originally wanted to … Continue reading La Passion – The Eternal Work In Progress
