(fingers against steel pins and wooden blocks)

Here are a few pictures of my hat-making class today. More to come tomorrow - yay! ^__^

wrestle-mania! :p
Millinery is demanding on fingers, as steamed materials need to be stretched into place with a multitude of metal pins against a wooden base. Some of my classmates' hats are covered with pins they start to look like hedgehogs.

got more to stretch tomorrow
Long nails turn out to be some sort of a blessing in disguise, as they either act as pliers or are callously wedged against thimbles. Pliers are useful to pull pins out, and we do have metal pliers in class so... I'm trimming mine off tonight.

Alright then, another long day is ahead of me tomorrow! Have a good day :))
