    That almost brought tears to my eyes. I love the saying because it so fits my youngest son and your work is fantastic.

    Hi just found my first post of my wall hanging... thank you all for the lovely comments you have posted. So glad that so many of you have read that saying and liked it.

    I did some research on Henry whilst I was sewing the wall hanging, and he was quite a man. He stood for what he believed in. Hell then I really knew why I loved his saying. I am also that stubborn......

    I cannot remember everything I found out about him now, but I have typed out what I felt was needed and I placed it into the file where I write about my quilts.

    I think if I was asked who I would like to meet, I think he would be the person I would like to meet.

    Will try and post more photoes soon. ciao

    This is a master piece creation. Wow and wow again. It is stunning.
    Cannot believe you did all the words by hand. Oh my gosh. Excellent.
    I hope it is in the lounge to be enjoyed by all.

    Beautiful! I wish I had thought of this quote when I was making the label for my niece's sweet 16 quilt. It would have been perfect! I'll just have to make her another quilt---maybe for birthday #17! You did a beautiful job! Thanks for sharing!!
