I love looking at it. I loved every minute working on it. I've never had something give me absolutely no trouble whatsoever. I actually worked very hard to put secret and hidden messages on it, and that somehow it gave it power.

if you go to FFL and see it, if they let you, please touch it (clean hands of course). and take a picture for sure!

That is awesome!!! Someone who saw the one you made for me - was saying if we'd put a drop of blood on the finger (I guess overstitch with red?) - it would have looked neat too. I've been seeing some of the quilts diabetics have made at the CWD forum - which are really neat as well (have you seen some of their creations). Now I want to make a quilt!!!
