"dream"ing of the weekend

i had been dying to try making a hammered spoon. they all look so darn cute, especially with something stamped into them. so i gave it a whirl.....first of all, i would say that there is a trick to hammering the spoon flat to begin with. i got the instructions from here. i can see that my pic looks slightly out of focus- however, i am apparently not that steady with the pounding for the letters. there is a trick for that as well- unfortunately, i have not mastered that yet. i guess i will have to keep trying. i did use a sharpie to "fill" in my letters and then, lightly sanded the spoon to take off the excess sharpie and to brighten my spoon. what are you "dreaming" of doing this weekend?....
