Happiness is Finishing a Project

On a Tuesday long ago, I talked about cross stitching and relaxation. Life got busy, and that project got set aside. Eventually it ended up on the bottom of my sewing bag, forgotten.  I came across it this week and finished it!


Happiness is finishing a project.
(and yes, it is still very relaxing!)
