    Very cool shot Catherine! Nice details and very nostalgic.

  • Thank you!! I’ve been sewing since I was nine, but these were not the spools we used! LOL ;)

    What a cool view. I love how this turned out. I have thought of these shots and never pulled it off as of yet. I may have needed something taller. THIS IS GREAT. LOVE THE TITLE!!!

  • Thanks for the encouraging words Elizabeth…sometimes it’s hard to judge your own work, it’s nice to know you liked it!!!
