Yesterday, I spent the afternoon with my friend, Diane, and she taught me how to solder microscope slide pendants. I'm pretty pleased with my results. They aren't perfect, but they are a beginner's efforts. Now, I'm sorely tempted to spend my birthday money (February 11) on soldering equipment instead of joining the altered arts book club. I was initially going to buy a sewing machine, but my mother is going to give me hers.
