It really is possible to teach an old dog (like me) new tricks/crafts. My friend, Susan, told me about a class at Sew Yeah where you make your own seam ripper. I'd been sick for a month, so I hadn't gotten out much which made me initially say, "no." Luckily, I changed my mind and went for it.
Carla from Creatin' in the Sticks was coming into town and it worked out perfectly for her to go. We had so much fun! I was even brave enough to go first.
Carla and me ready to rock that lathe machine. Her glasses are cuter than my goggles.
This is the beginning piece of wood.
