I feel your pain I couldn't even get that far. When I did it was so bad I knew I screwed it up. So mine sat on the coffee table too. Then I finally did tinked it. It worked but I don't have the heart to pick it up again.
I just look at the foot and how nice it fits on my toes. I did find a no turn heel I am thinking of trying it. Keep your thoughts for me to get this heel thing right. Now give me a regular heel and I am a wip on it. I will get this heel but it is going to take a little more time than I thought.
