Last summer I took a class with Susan Feller at her idyllic place in the mountains. I thought she was an excellent teacher - hands off enough to let you feel like you were actually doing something yourself - and hovering enough to make sure you were actually getting it. The project she started us with was four coasters. I nearly finished the first one while I was there. Came home and let things sit until March/April when I decided to finally finish them. Now I'm in the process of finishing the edges. One down; maybe I'll be done by next March/April?
