So much prettier than those designer things, and UNIQUE, not to mention stunning.

You have every right to be proud.

Looks great, you could make a jacket to go with :wink:
Our remote ancestors said to their mother Earth, "We are yours."
Modern humanity has said to Nature, "You are mine."
The Green Man has returned as the living face of the whole earth so that through his mouth we may say to the universe, "We are one."

Wow! Beautiful! Well done!
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!
