Ok, so I am getting there, thanks to the help of Derrek helping me understand the directions, gosh I felt dumb! I was gettting frustrated and ended up throwing the ball on the table and walking away, but he saved the day and was patient and helped me re-do it the right way. I think sometimes I just want o hurry up and get to the end result and then I rush and screw up and get frustrated. I need to slow down and enjoy, crafting is not supposed to make me crazy! So I am almost done stuffing and sewing the last part up, but I learned a lot, I need to sew the corners better and stuff it more, but not too shabby for my first one. The other picture I just had to include, my cat "Trooper" wanted to go back to Amazon.com and bring me some books, so he waiting to get mailed out! I thought it was cute!
