slow and steady

isn't the middle of a yarn ball cool?

  • He conquers who endures - Persius
  • Stubbornly persist and you will find that the limits of your stubbornness go well beyond the stubbornness of your limits - Robert Brault

  • I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday - anonymous

Motivational quotes? I got plenty of them as I continue to plug away at these mitred squares. I think I may adopt that last one as my mantra. Because I really am closer to finishing these than I was yesterday.

YES! the middle of the yarn ball is cool. I gazed at that photo a few seconds before I saw the caption, wondering what I was looking at.

And I love the name Lucretius (Luke for short?). Thanks for sharing the inspirational vibes.
