The curse is broken!
Yasss, I totally knocked out that column over the weekend. Anxiety floated in for a second, or two, at the very last 100 stitches because of all the colors. All of it disappeared after that first line. Then the flow was easy and the next thing I knew the column was finished. A good catalyst for moving to the next column. I’m feeling confident about it.
I must say thanks to everyone for the wonderful encouraging words! You guys are amazing. It was just the push I needed to make it through. (^_^)
Keep on stitching!
