Here 'tis. I finished it off last night. Well, actually - there is one more thing to do - I have a small door handle type embellishment I want to add - but I just have to find the right way to safely puncture the canvas to attach it. Other than that - it's finished.

This is my word for the year... It is a reminder to me that the hardest step is usually the first. And I have managed many times to take the first step - and I know how that just seems to open up and unleash so much - whether it be creativity, thoughts, ideas or opportunities. So - it's my reminder. To continue to bravely step forward - even if they're baby steps. Keep moving forward. My favourite quote - which I've had in my study for about 10 years now sums it up perfectly:

"Keep going and chances are you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I have never heard of anyone stumbling on something sitting down"
Charles F Kettering

Have a wonderful day!
