Hypothesis: Everyone can craft. Even the clueless. Well, maybe not clueless, even the clumsy.
Date of Experiment: 14 April 2009
Time of Experiment Commencement: 11:15 am
Conditions: caffeinated, sunny, baby asleep. Using Frankie wrapping paper.
Location: Living room coffee table, home, Dandenong Ranges, Victoria
Equipment prepared before commencement. Crafty Book engaged, beginner project identified.
Forgot. My inability to cut a straight line legendary. Click image to view true outcome.
Hmm. Not looking so good so far. Possibly wrapped too tight, will correct in repeat procedure. Will reserve judgement until stem attached.
Stem attached. Does not appear to replicate image in book.
11:44 Change in conditions: baby awake.
Repetition of experiment did not improve outcome. Suspect that experiment subject (self) may be missing craft gene.
Conclusion: Success of experiment: perhaps 3/10. Further experimentation required. Flowers left in pot, when dusty, not wilted will make way to bin. Bobby pins (stamen) to be recycled.
