I’m off to Snag in Toronto tonight. I booked a red eye – much against Cameron company policy (yes, that is just me, but it sounds more professional, yo), in the days after my last trip to Australia when the thought of more connecting flights was still too traumatic to contemplate. But now I get in at 7am-ish, and that’s possibly just as bad an idea… Still, it was the only direct flight from Seattle.
Enough trivialities! I am busy making, as well as doing a pewter spoon course (see below). I bought some pewter dishes to work with recently (not really intending to, but you can hardly buy pewter by accident, you know what I’m saying?) and this course happened to be running at Danaca Design (a local jewellery workshop that offers night classes) so for the last two Monday nights I’ve been learning the dark arts of pewter-smithing. The Chubby Bubby spoon is my (as yet unfinished) first attempt.
