"But, really, why does anyone create? You feel a... a restlessness inside, a need to make something new, something no one has ever seen before. You want to add to the beauty and the richness of the world with a gift, an offering that is uniquely yours. It's an act of selfishness and generosity, all rolled into one."

The Ship Has Sailed

Here's the completed TIAS. It could use a little bit of pressing, but overall it came out well.

If I were to make it again, I would probably find it easier to start with the mast and hull, and do the sails last. However, starting with the sails definitely made for a better TIAS, as it kept us all guessing what those little triangular bits were for. And I liked that this TIAS was longer, too. Jane was well able to hold my interest for the whole thing. Thank you as always, Jane!
