Final Checklist aka did I get it all done

make some decorative items (hat/pouch jewels and gown trim)

Between Feb 27th and March 27th-

Make test outfit: yes – enough that I knew it would work. In some cases it took a couple of mock ups to work

Make hat: yes – 50% hand sewn –

Make pouch: yes – 100% hand sewn

Make gown: sadly no but he’ll have it before 100 Minutes War

So there it is. I tried to hold myself to a higher competition level than I entered at. Did this cause me to not finish everything? In part but I also grossly underestimate how long things take. I’m getting somewhat better at that but clearly still have room for improvement. I opted to sleep (for a few hours) last night. As such I did not get the shoes done. Could I have banged out simple quick shoes this morning? Perhaps but I didn’t do that. Past me would. Current me understands the value in not carrying frantic energy. So I’m going to get some garb on and make myself pretty. I don’t expect to ‘win’ but I don’t need to. I’ve proven to myself that I can compete. I made amazing garb for my son and it’s the most HA things I’ve ever done. I’m proud of me.

    …and Thus endeth the Lesson!
    It is what we learn about ourselves and how we increase our skills that makes this sort of activity valuable. You have clearly learned many things.

    Anne, you have succeeded nobly.

    I think this is a leaving process. I love that you kept track of progress and acknowledged the things you didn’t get to without beating yourself up. Great project overall!
