So this is my ring. It's a custom made, 6 prong, milgrain design, with pave diamonds on three sides. The design I chose was inspired by Bvlgari's 125th anniversary ring that I fell in love with (and obviously couldn't afford). I love the way it turned out. The four month wait was totally worth it.
So did you notice the blue finger? So the day after picking up my ring, I had a bit of a run-in with my rotary cutter. I accidentally cut off a chunk of my finger instead of cutting the pretty blue fabric that I was using for a baby quilt that I frantically trying to finish. Long story short, I was forced to go to the hospital after trying to act tough for the first 3 hours of gushing blood. The worse part was that the magic chemical-infused gauze thing that the doctor used to make it stop bleeding hurt more that cutting off my finger. So, to all my sewing friends out there...watch your fingers! Especially when you have JUST switched the blade.
So, I'm back in Taiwan now. Reunited with my boy. Reacquainting myself with the humidity. And doing all the prep-work and annoying paper work for my first week of business school. Today, I'm off to orientation. Wish me luck.
