I am a process person, and rarely finish anything. If I do, it languishes in a box for a few years until I find it again and find a use for it. Jan is both a "process" and a "product" person. This takes character and perseverence that I don't have.
Anyway, do go visit Jan Fitzpatrick at her beautiful blog, "Thread Medley" - and don't forget to also click on her other page to see her "Adaptations" and explanations, as well as yummy pictures and patterns.
