Another good thing to do is ask the 896 year old tutor questions.
Not just 'Is this how to do it?' or 'Is this a good colour choice?' but 'What about we change the design a little? You know, we could just sew strips of silk together and then back it with a long piece of velvet?'
As you would expect of a list of 100 things there are 98 others but I have just chosen my two best.
Really luvverley things to post about next time!
