so, the project continues. its making everyone happy so, why not? i love making these and i love that at least a few people are making their own. (please post pictures and let me know if you do!) anyway, i've gotten a bunch more questions so i figured a progress report was in order.
the original list of a dozen? yeah, that's now a list of over 40 people. i've set a limit for myself of 50. i'm not going to try to get there but if i do, i'm done. it still seems like a reasonable number and i'm over halfway there.
i'm being VERY careful to not overtax my hands. i'm doing them in small batches of four. cutting the fabric, transferring the pattern, doing the actual stitching and then finishing. my phalanges, while tired, aren't doing any one thing for too terribly long at a time. i'm taking breaks. i'm making sure that this project that i'm loving so much doesn't start to feel exhausting.
so, yay all around! i'll probably post another update next week. stay tuned!
