What are you most proud of? That I actually managed to make it in time, and more or less managed to get the design that I wanted.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It was rather hard to work with the thick wool. The pressing was difficult, and really important in order to get a nice finish. Probably spent twice the amount of time pressing compared to sewing!
