I've got a completely numb thumb and 2 fingers from gripping the tool for 8 hours. I cannot feel my hand and I've just had a nights sleep!

And my hips wakened me up at 5am from bending over the table.

It was all starting to hurt half way through and I thought it best to power through in case I didn't finish it hmm wtf

What was it and, looking at it now, was it worth it? Hope so, merry Christmas

A family tree cheeseboard for a relative. I hope she likes it but it's not guaranteed as she doesn't really do 'commemorative' stuff.

Wow, it's beautiful, what an amazing gift, you should be proud!

I once made a hole in my finger quilting a baby toy, I don't think anyone really appreciated it enough given that I made myself bleed, but I knew...

A hole in the finger shock

Bloody crafting, there's no way I'd have the stamina to make things for a living.
