A Small Measure of Progress

We have had the pleasure of company the past few days. The company of friends. The kind you spend hours talking with and realize that you’re going to run out of time before you run out of things to say. These are friends that years and years ago gave me a card that I kept because I knew they meant it. It reads “Friends are the family you choose for yourself.”

This is before adding the textured paper.

After their departure which was much too soon, I decided it would be best for me to jump back into my project.

The paper is fabulous to work with.

I made a small measure of progress on it. At this stage, it doesn’t seem very dramatic.

I could probably do this all day.

But, it’s one of those ‘one step at a time’ things. You have to know where you’re going in order to make a plan. Or is it you have to have a plan to get where you want to go?

I especially like how it softens the edges.

In any case, I hope things will move along a little quicker after today but we shall see. Every day is an adventure.

Now it’s ready for the next step. Yea!

“Ah, how good it feels!  The hand of an old friend.”
