Oh I'm so glad!

this is just beautiful
Women getting together could do amazing, worldly things - finding each other and finding their voice. I like to think she’d have seen this as passing this on to a younger generation. I’m sure she’s smiling, wherever she is.”
Though "Shannon... always tries to complete unfinished projects she comes across which have been started by someone who has died. “I feel like I’m doing something to make sure their soul is resting,” she says." gave me a bit of pause. I have so many unfinished crafting projects that I just got lazy about or flung somewhere because they weren't coming out how I'd hoped... I'd hate to think someone years from now would one day go through my estate and find them and think my soul even remembered that time I tried to crochet a French horn...

So glad it's going to a museum.

Changing the world (or some part of it) one stitch at a time.
