About 3 hours of work to get to this point. I sewed my finger to it once, and then almost did a second time (hand sewing, and the needle/thread only passed through the uppermost layer of skin, but it felt rather weird).
First time posting using Flickr’s “blog this” option; let’s see how it works.
ETA: Hmm, well that’s rather convenient for posts containing just one picture. Except I still have to add tags via Blogger’s editor.
