I may have seriously underestimated the amount of work left on the curtain. It's been another week of working on this every day, and I'm only a bit over halfway through the zigzag strip.
It takes about six hours to do one zigzag, and I have six left. Then the stacked diamonds. And then cutting around the whole outside to release the curtain. (Not to be confused with releasing the kraken.)
I have 18 days left until the deadline for Fair entries. Countdown to 5:00 pm on July 30. I may not make it.
