I’m in love! Yes, still with Steve, but also with the new tools I discovered today! I must have this cool hand-held metal punch I played with all day today. It has different punches you can put in it and change the diameter of the circles. Plus, the pieces that are punched out look like little Chinese hats. I also discovered the need for an automatic center punch. I was borrowing my neighbor’s until I could race down to the bookstore and buy one for myself. It’s so much easier than the old one and so much fun! Tonight I finished making the pieces for a cool spring-loaded clasp we’re making. I had to make both pieces twice, but I think I have ones that will work. My brooch, however, was a study in correcting mistakes. What a project.
