I’m My Own Worst Enemy – the 17th Century Challenge

After all that babble about my process of elimination and how I wanted to do something safe…I changed my mind. I truly want this to be a challenge that will stretch my knowledge and skills.

So I’m going to go with the one that caught my eye and see how far I get before either 1) I remember hand sewing black on black is neither fun nor easy, 2) I need new eyeglasses, 3) I need a really good pharmaceutical, or 4) I actually get it done.

After all, 365 days is a lot of time. Right? I must be certifiable.
