Soapstone is still off the menu (hence why no post last week) as the new boiler has only just made it onto the wall today. :S The men arrived 8 days late and it is now day 4 of a 3 day job with day 5 still to come...woo hoo! At least with any luck we may have heating by the end of the tomorrow, which considering the weather has taken a turn to the cooler side is just as well.
Anyhoo, as I still can't get to my craft desk to photograph my soapstone jewellery, I decided to do a little surfing today to find some free polymer clay tutorials and websites that might be of interest to you.
So here goes...
No 1 - Polymer Clay Central - A heart cane with photographic step-by-steps by Candice Mathewson.
