I cannot express how much I love my friends and our mornings together. Man.
|Leann arrived first -- and headed for the coffee|
|First "we" went into the seam by the tail...Joan made a long tube/sleeve and attached it to the inside of the hole that was created by opening one of my seams.|
|This is the second insert/tube/sleeve -- look at those smooth, even stitches.|
|This is the first seam that I will close back up.|
|and this is the pole/base/stand that I will sand and repaint...but it is much too humid today. I did go out and get the paint, though!|
Thank You SO much, Joan (and Leann) for your help and guidance and patience and friendship and...and...and...
