I had a hard time believing I would be able to make this. But, I did! There is no way I could have made it without the teacher. She was a great teacher and there was only two students. I was so stressed about cutting pieces and putting it together. I was almost in tears, which is silly. The teacher let me come in early and she cut the strips. She was so very helpful and kind. I'm going to have to try to make more. Or at least, take more classes. I made plenty of mistakes but I'm pleased with the outcome, none-the-less! Yeah me!
