Ending the year with JOY

I've actually finished the patching of Remember 2016 ...

All that remains is to hang it out on the next sunny day to celebrate it in its wholeness. But for now, there's some catching up to do on the final patches.

December 24 Star of wonder

December 28 Centerpiece (I know, I skipped December 25-27, but those were the last patches I made, so I'm saving them for last)

December 29 Wylie words

December 30 What 39 years together looks like

December 31 I did it!

And finally, ending the year with ...

using the last of the pre-made patches which, of course, fit perfectly into the last remaining space.

December 25 The beginning of JOY

December 26 In the midst of JOY

and December 27 Complete JOY

It's been an amazing journey, one filled with laughter and tears, almost 10,000 miles in the air and countless more spent on the road. I learned much and was grateful for the presence of the Kindred Spirits who came by and cheered me on.

There is still backing and stitching to do, but for now I'm calling Remember 2016 done and moving on to Enjoy 2017.
