This was a present for my daughter...I can't tell you how many times I ripped it apart and started over. It still isn't what I envisioned but here it is.

Awww. How totally cute. I don't know what part you did not like. Can we not be so critical of ourselves??? We have talent...and experiment, and challenge ourselves constant. That counts for lots. Nobody else will know the difference, believe me. They are just mesmarized when they know it is hand made with love. And most times they can't do it, so it means even more. Stop beating yourselves down. I am Wowed by most things I see here. We have many talented artists, yourself included. I love his fuzzy, and the color is perfect. I want to kiss his nose  Grin

He is adorable!! I want to hug him!!! He is amazing you did a wonderful job!
 I understand how you're feeling, you think and work on a project so much and when it doesn't turn out how you pictured its hard to step back and see that your project turned out great.
