In the spring of 2001 I started stitching Nova by Genny Morrow.
I got through it by stitching one or two blocks every morning before going to work. After I finished a block I noted the date on the chart before moving onto the next.
On that morning the news was on in the background and I was working on block J-15 and had just started block J-16. When I overheard the news my hands were shaking so badly I had to put down my work. I always finished a block before putting the stitching aside. Not this one. I had to finish it later on that evening.
That's the block in the center right. The green one with some pick and rust.
I don't always take notes as I stitch or keep I diary. I'm glad I did in this case.
I stitched the final block on January 14, 2002 and had it framed shortly thereafter.
