i have said enough about this one. i dropped the writing idea and had in mind to slice it and shift it somewhat. something shocking... but in the end it just got a bit larger. like the beast that turned from a lion into a tiger (did you notice that?) while i was focusing on tiny stitches, the big picture has changed and this seems to be growing into something else. i'll stitch a bit more tonite and that's it. with this complete, i am through with the challenge. i have enough of my own for the moment.
