I have spent the past few nights working on a present for a friend's birthday. Since I was making up the pattern, there was some trial and error (see this for an explanation of my first attempt). I finished the main portion of the project last night, and added on the details today. I don't want to post full pictures of it because I don't want my friend to figure out what her present is!
I'm mailing this off to her tomorrow. Once she receives it I will post the full pictures and possibly the pattern (if I've fine-tuned the pattern by then). Hopefully she will like it!
