Embroidery takes a fearsome long time. I've finished about 1/3 of the embroidery on the back of the veste. That means I'm not quite done with half the embroidery just on this piece. I am seriously doubting that I will get all the bits and pieces done before NYE.
I'm full of excuses why I haven't finished more yet, but excuses are like @$$holes, everyone has one and they all stink.
