Just kidding! But they do take a while.
I put together a photo essay, so I can do a tutorial if anybody else wants to try it. Come on, it'll be fun! BYO Thimbles!
But I do love these blocks. Maybe it's the amount of effort, maybe it's the fact that I went to the trouble to make something that can be procured pretty easily--like making your own breadcrumbs or your own cheese. Yo. I did this. I didn't have to, and I totally did. 'Sup. Just try knockin' me down.
