Well, I have been frantically trying to finish one final present for someone who I am 99.7% sure does not read this. In case they do, I only have this to say: "Hey! Look at the insane thing I made you! Ain’t it purty?" Otherwise, this thing, this craft, this monstrosity snowballed from a simple idea into a project that was a bit over my head. But I faked it ’til I made it and this is the result of my labor:
It doesn’t look like much, but I promise you it is 5 feet of blood, sweat and tears in addition to multiple pin pricks.
On a MUCH happier note, my friend Rachael sent me a lovely xmas present that I opened early and it is BEAUTIFUL! The pattern for Hanami, the beads, the teeniest crochet hook in the known universe, some delicious yarn – Buttercream by Yarn Chef, and one of her famous, homemade project bags!
Now, if only the presents I ordered her 3 weeks ago would hurry up and bloody well get here! Grrr! I haven’t forgotten you Rachael, Baby! There’s something lovely coming for you!
