It just about passes as being Way Back, thanks to the fact I made both of these last year, when Julie and I first ran the workshop. There are a couple of other alternatives included in the same tutorial, and I'm slightly ashamed to say that three out of a total five are still sitting in my living room. Not because I'm super-lazy and haven't tidied up since last November (although there's currently an enormous cobweb behind the TV that looks like it could have been brewing for that long), but because I liked them too much to give away. Is that very stingy?
I'm thinking I should maybe craft along with this year's students and make a couple more as presents. But not until we've moved past the fog and fruitfulness into the season of mince pies and mistletoe. I wouldn't want you to think I was quite that organised...
PS. If you'd like to see a few more class peeks, keep an eye on my Flickr stream. I'm planning to post a couple each day for the next week or so.
