    I cant help but wish to share with you all what Sandra did for me. It is a Kokopelli, something my dad dearly loved, he always told me to never get a tatoo, when he passed away my daughter and daughter in law all three got one.
    Well Sandra found a pattern for paper piecing and she did one. I have to show off what she did because she struggled with this for 3 days at least!! I will frame it and hang it on the wall with my dad's pictures!!

    this pattern was one of the hardest I have ever done!!! and working it backwards with out a photo made it even harder at times I would spend an hour on 2 little peices trying to get them together right to where it matched up decently. but I over came and succeded I won't be doing it again lol.
    my dear friend is like the sister I never had and shes really a speical person in my life and others. It was worth the pain.
    Love you.

    Love the colors she used. It would make a great tatoo.

    That's lovely. I used to see such things in the Indian trading post right up the mountains from Albuquerque, NM when my ex was stationed there.
    That is a work of art and you should be proud of it.

    thank you ladies... she is my inspiration in the quilting life now. However I am not sure I would even wish to try that lol. No need I will display that proudly on my wall with the many other "daddy things" The fact that she worked so hard and made that to me is so very special.
