Day 6 of 21 continued

I hate to leave things sitting around unfinished. . . because I know myself. I'll get into something else and forget about what I was working on. I had to finish my squishie tonight, before I went to bed, and I'm glad I did because it looks so much better in the pot. And that was a real challenge, I had to improvise a bit. Inside the felt pot I sewed is a plastic cup filled with glass pebbles to give the flower weight and stability. And it just so happened to fit magically. . . I love it when that happens! So all of that stuff is hidden, and it looks completely felt. That was a fun change!

I understand very well what you say about unfinished projects, in fact I was thinking about it this morning, may be this is how I must go on with this challenge...
