More progress....


Today's quote is from William Hersey Davis...

"The circumstances amid which you live determine your reputation;  the truth you believe determine your character.  Reputation is what you are supposed to be; character is what you are.  Your reputation is made in a moment; your character is build in a lifetime.  Reputation makes you rich or makes you poor;  character makes you happy or makes you miserable.  Reputation is what men say about you on your tombstone;  character is what the angels say about you before the throne of God"

What a great quote! I'm definitely on the side of the angels!!!
Love your recent crazy stitching on that lovely black background - makes me want to get out my threads but no chance of that at the moment!
Have a great weekend!
