I love that HP character sampler and I remain incredibly impressed by those of you who are able to do something with a needle craft other than make yourself bleed profusely. I'm hopeless.
Although, I can't imagine the amount of work that's going to go into the final product. 0_o
Sorry to hear that 2013 has been working it's special brand of hell on you too. I'm not sure what it is but just about everyone I know and myself has just had it so hard with very little respite. Here's hoping that 2014 brings all of us a bit of much needed relief, eh?
