I designed and made a big bunch of these crochet Christmas decorations eight Christmases ago, while I was pregnant with miss E, I've never had the time or inclination to try to make any since. I was, however, recently asked if I would write up the pattern for a publication. Today marked the deadline that I didn't meet. Epic fail.
It's not like I didn't try, I did take a bunch of photos, in the vain hope it would make my written words seem clearer. I tried writing it lots of different ways, to work with the photos. I worried about my "left-handed-ness" coming across in the written pattern, would a right handed person be able to make one in the same way I described? It's complicated construction meant, lots of little steps to describe, each seemed to confuse even me, the designer!
It's a sad defeat, one I'm not at all happy about. I wasn't the only person submitting, so I haven't let the publication down, just myself, can you tell I'm disappointed? Please tell me you've "failed" at something lately too?
