Sometimes I have to make the design a few times before I'm happy with the look
and how well it can be constructed so that it holds up in the real world.

These were the rejects.

I forgot to surprise Kat on the 20th when we both attended the London jam so I took a selection to Northampton
yesterday and Kat decided to have the Thelma Levett CD and the book by Addi Somekh.
