Its been a long time since I’ve posted, and so much has happened. And at times it is hard to find words to describe anything. Some good, some bad, I’m sorry this is so vague but I can’t get into it. I’m trying to be optimistic, and see the light at the end of the tunnel. But we all know that with life’s curve balls that can be hard. I wanted to share one of my FO’s from the month of May, my bittersweet shrug.
Sweet, because it looks beautiful with the green dress I found at the big W. Sweet, because it looks just like how I imagined it would in my head.
Sweet because the back lies flat when my arms are down and there are no bat wings.
Bitter because I finished it on May 3.
