Today has been a fun and busy day.
I worked all day, from 9:00 this morning until now - which is about 7:30 p.m. - soldering.
I'm trying to finish my sister's birthday present from last year because her birthday this year is less than a month away.
Now that's some pressure and some procrastination.
I've been planning to make a birthday celebration crown but it's such a big undertaking that I have needed several hours to dedicate at once to the task. Today I spent the whole day working on it, and am still not finished.
My soldering is really rusty, but I still love it. I don't mean I love it, I mean I LOVE IT!
Here's what I have so far.
I'll post some more as I get to it.
Later, I'll have to tell you all about my "new studio."
P.S. My el-cheapo Radio Shack soldering gun is also el-crapo. It's tipped burned off within a few sessions today (the first time I've used it!) and now it won't really heat. I'm going to change tips but I wouldn't recommend it to any one. I do have to say, however, that it is really easy to solder with... it's just junky.
