Thankfully, this fabric was only two bucks a yard! Thank you, Paron Annex!
Today I had a conversation with Rich in car about having passion and making sacrifices for that passion; working hard because nothing good comes easily ("sometimes you've got to fight..." lol)... And well... I'm going to keep trying because...I think I found something that excites me and something I could eventually be good at! I just need more practice! :) so yes, attempt #1 was not a smashing success...but it was a learning experience and maybe attempt #2 will be way wayyyy wayyyyyyy better. :) wearable, even! :)
