Buuuut, here's just a rundown of what I've been up to:
To be brief, we had words, and I won.
I had a problem with the yellow and white part of the design. Aside from the fact that, in retrospect, the color combinations were not exactly great, I'd screwed up the circles while I was laying the couching thread and it made my life miserable during the buttonholing.
May it rest in peace... (not).
At your right, you will see gift 2.0. Everything with this one went great. I got the pattern down, the buttonholing wasn't over complicated, buuut upon release from the backing, it turned out that it was too flimsy for my intended use (an earring) and, out of nowhere, the outline broke on me.
Let's just say that it's sleeping with the fishes and leave it at that.
Anywho, I hope to be able to at least make another post before the world ends in December (=P), but I gotta tell you I'm just trying to focus on not getting carpal tunnel from all the notes I have to take for school 0.o
