YAY! I finally got it done. Well, it was done a couple of days ago and then life took over. GAH!
I couldn't figure out how I wanted to finish it, then it got down to the wire and I had to do something. I did a little hand stitching, and a lot of machine stitching. It's not my best, but I learned from it. One thing I learned was that I needed to throw out all of my Steam-A-Seam and get some new stuff. Then don't wait so long to use it! I had to iron, then re-iron the pieces, they wouldn't stick! So everything is sew down in one way or another!
I think I will put this up in my bedroom or bathroom to remind me of the sunny beaches I used to live by. It may help me get through these long, dark, PNW winters!!!
