Sweet lord in heaven, I finally finished this thing, and all I can see are faults. I had to keep leaving the room and popping back to see if it was as dreadful as I thought. Not so awful, not so great, disappointing, but not bad for a first attempt using a sewing machine from the middle ages (just kidding, but it is vintage circa 1955). I just want to do so much better, I want to make people feel that sand in their toes, hear that absolute silence, I want to …. to…. to recreate that incredible experience of the lonely, dusty, stark Namibian desert all in cloth. So terribly hard, but so worth trying.
Anyway, for what it’s worth I’ve posted this one in my etsy and DaWanda shops and can’t wait to try again. More oryx next time, they always move around in giant herds, but my fingers are sore, and there’s always tomorrow.
