I would never in a million years have thought to do that! what an awesome way to upcycle an old afghan, its so sad to see them being unloved when so much has gone into making. I just can't get over how super cute these little guys are! INSPIRED recon! genius.

wow! thank you for your lovely responses! I enjoyed making the lace like that but blimey attaching it was hard!

Its not wrong to like the before dress! lol Grin I could see good things in it when I found it, and the drop waist was really nice too- this would have been a vest top if not for that being on the original!
Its really nice to get such positive feedback! I haven't been putting myself out there for the world for very long- I was chicken for ages and its a lot easier when people are nice about the things you do so thanks again! Cheesy

its a shame you cant post your pic on the net I would like to see it! Its good you are more happy today, its hard to learn to let that kind of thing slide off you like water! I still find it really hard and it does get to you but just put it in a tiny tiny box in your mind and leave it be (also- make the box pretty you are a crafter after all!) 
I was so close to punching that girl its not true but then I always figure if someones out to hurt me and get a reaction to just be REALLY REALLY NICE! they hate it SO much! but yeah she aint NEVER coming into my house again because twice means claws out eyes scratched out rage!
so yes, put these things behind you, tack em up to experience and keep doing what you do because what really matters is that you love doing it!  Grin

oh bless you. Thats so mean of her, I wouldn't take that as an insult to your work though. Take it on board accept it and move on. Its so difficult when you put so much effort and heart into something only to be knocked back though.

 I was reconstructing a dress that I was pretty pleased with and then this girl I had never met before came INTO MY HOUSE and started insulting me, she then looked at my dummy, demanded I swap with her, then noticed the dress burst out laughing and said ' oh I don't mean to sound patronising but thats really good!' I nearly punched her there and then but as she is my good friends girlfriend I had to just smile and take it ALL NIGHT. Angry  I couldn't look at the dress to finish it for a few days because she was so mean to me.  Cry  But then I decided to just finish it, I started to get a really lovely response to it and felt instantly better and have the confidence to continue learning!  Grin

I guess what I am trying to say is that your mum was probably hypnotised by the lunatics lantern (er sorry that's what I call TV!) so bad that she didn't even realise how she hurt you. I bet its a beautiful thing you made her and she should be slightly more appreciative of you! - next time she shows you a new cross stitch just return the favour of indifference and I guarantee you she won't be so cold about your creations again!  Grin She may even be jealous that you are good at this. who knows, but don't let it get you down- if a bunch of strangers like you and what you make then that's a much bigger compliment than from friends and family anyway!
I will stop babbling now but cheer up chickadee!
Cheesy
