I'm Levitating....

And I have been for a couple of days...now I really thought that was hocus pocus...if you watch America's Got Talent you've seen the guy that does...I didn't believe it...until I finished this...

...now I know it's possible.  I've been floating about 3 feet off the floor ever since I put in the last stitch the other day.  Thanks to a good friend that showed me hers and lit the fire in me to pull it out and do it (it's been hidden since 2009)...and to another friend that taught me to break up a daunting project into small steps and then work at it.  Now it's ready for my quilter...WhooHoo!  You know I've said many times...We get by with a little help from our friends...oh so true!!!!!

P.S,  Sorry for the camera strap in the lower left corner...Mr. Brown Quilts wasn't available to hold for me so I had to do it...took 12 pictures and this was the best...LOL!

Ooh I wanted to see you three foot off the ground but that cute quilt is almost as good! Love the house and wondering what size the smaller ones are??

Well done! I'm sure it must feel good to have it finished. Breaking it down to manageable parts is the way to go. Now if I could only do that . . .
