This week was about overcoming fear.
I was really terrified of my microtorch, but without it there were things I wanted to make that were beyond my ability.
Like, tiny delicate headpins. Or heat patinas.
Finally I screwed my courage to the sticking place (what does that even mean anyway, where is that from?) and got out the torch, picked up some wire, set up a spot out on the patio and gave it a go.
Surprisingly, exhilaratingly, it was okay. And now, I can make headpins.
I feel very brave.
