Heather Ales hosted and taught the class from her lovely home. It was very informative (I didn't have a clue what flux was before then) and I think I can officially say that I am addicted. It was definitely fun. Yes, I was anal retentive about it, but it was fun, nonetheless.
My first attempt was a bit of a challenge and came out pretty lumpy.
My second try was much easier. It looks better, but I don't think I put enough solder on it.
That's okay though... practice makes perfect and I'll be able to practice all I want to, as soon as my beginners kit arrives.
One of the best parts of the day was getting to meet Joanna face to face. She is an absolute doll!
(this is Heather and her)
I can only imagine what she must think of me, however. In true "Alisa" fashion, I became an introvert as soon as I walk through Heather's front door. You would think that after 37 years of this silly shyness, I'd be over it by now. I guess I should be thankful for the progress I have made during that time... *sigh* oh well.
I promise Joanna, now that I've actually met you, next time I won't so closely resemble a lump on a log. I really do have a personality... really.
