Okey-dokey.
This is what I learned how to do on Wednesday.
Started around 11am...needed to brew some coffee by 11:30. Heh heh.
Tuesday night was kinda late, considering I let myself read and read and read more of the current Siri Mitchell book I was into.

Hmm.
We're not completely done with the caning though...the edge needs to look something like this:
See that edge? The straight line?
That's something like what we're going to try to achieve.
I've primed probably...oh, let me count and be accurate...
7 canvases of different sizes. Today. Yes. Another coat, and they'll be ready to work with.
Interesting.

Of course, that's not all there is to it... but it's interesting nonetheless.
That's all for now. I've got some funny pictures from today...and fb isn't letting my download any videos at the moment, so that's kind of annoying. :)
