I have decided that I will not change anything and will start working on the background tonight. For this, I will do something very very simple (maybe a skip tent?), so that the eye has a resting place. I'm still not too sure about the border, but methinks this will be simple also so that the hearts take center stage.
It cracks my heiney that I've had this thing for soooooo long and then all of a sudden I'm finishing it! I swear it was a lightning bolt that prompted me to pick this up after so many years, but I'm not going to question it. Maybe it will strike again and I'll finally get some other long-held WIP's finished before my deadline?
Do you realize that I've been at this since July24th! I don't think I've stuck with anything this long before. Now I'm on a mission to make it to the bitter end. November 1st will be here before I know it and I might actually get to go into 2010 with a manageable number of unfinished projects hanging over my head. Woo Hoo!
Thanks again for all of your comments and for taking time out of your day to stop by...I am truly not worthy to know such wonderful peoples!
