About 8 months later, on a trip to California during my huband's last deployment, I started to stitch. I managed to complete the top girls hat. Again, the project sat. I set the goal of finishing during the deployment, I would stitch here and there, not making much progress since I was both parents to 3 active kids and focusing on other things. I decided to make it a goal for 2017 and have stuck with it for the past few months.
