With all the crafting, some of it is bound to turn out kind of...not how I'd want it to.

I did a Frida Kahlo and it turned out like this:
Now, part of the issue is that there's a shadow under her brow from the way it's lit.
But...there's something not right about it. And it's in the face. I think the jaw is too rounded, maybe, too.

I'm disappointed in it. It's especially disappointing because the flower embroidery took for-ev-er. It sucks to work a long time on something and have it not turn out as you'd hoped.

Interesting. And quite lovely. But I understand being disappointed in your own work very much. Keep making these! Send me this one since you dislike it!

Well a picture of ME crafting that would have involved at least three broken windows with the raw materials thrown through one, a large piece of furniture through the second and myself through the third. So there's that.
