This is totally a brag post, but I’m pretty damn happy with how it came out. I finally finished the necklace I promised to make my mom for her birthday... last year. Better late than never, right?

And it’s even better because this year it’ll be a surprise! She had picked out the colors last year but never saw it in progress; and then when depression crept in and I didn’t finish it in time, I think she was fairly disappointed. (I did get her something else at the last minute—don’t remember what though.) So now I get to redeem myself AND she won’t be expecting it. VICTORY IS MINE.
