I'll Just Go Hide in a Hole Now

I'm still plugging away at the pieces of Subtle Memory. It's kind of nice seeing it all finally come together... but I still have quite a long way to go.

Because of that, even though it makes me want to crawl up in a ball and hide from the world, I've changed my mind yet again and have decided to wait until I get home to put up the collection instead of doing it piece by piece like I thought I would.

I've realized that it's just not practical to try to send things out from here, learn a new postal system, buy all new packaging materials (which I would then either have to leave here or figure out how to cart home), finish messing about with the storefront (which turns out to be much more complicated than I'd originally thought -.-), and figure out substitutes for the materials I left at home on top of everything else.

I really should have thought this all through before this trip and am quite disappointed in myself for it, but there's really nothing that can be done about that now.

So, I'm just going to keep working and hopefully the extra time will allow me to add some of the things I had originally wanted to have as part of the collection (maybe I should just wait until April and pretend I meant 2013 the whole time :P).

On a happier note: While taking a break from working on the tops, Jonas got a new dress. :) She hasn't had anything new (that she gets to keep) since the dress that inspired this catastrophe, so it felt good to make something new for her.

I really need to re-suede her arms. :/

It's very simple and a bit lopsided since I tried to sew it fast, but I think it came out fairly cute. ^^
