I showed you how I created a Gustavian finish.
And lastly.....
I nearly lost my mind sewing this duvet cover with a million buttons.
So that's the recap of 2013.
I did a lot more than I realized.
I wonder what my mental health would have been like if I hadn't found these projects?????
That's a scary thought.
On that note,
Have a Happy New Year and may the next one be really really good!!!!!
