I had no idea that working with curves would be so dang hard for a beginner. Nobody told me I should be starting with something simple. Not to mention that I had to use templates and cut everything out with scissors! Did I know there were rotarty cutters for this? Actually I'm not sure they were being used yet LOL And if they were they were certainly out of my price range.
This was in the day when I started one project and finished it! If only I was that way now!
