Aw thanks, folks!
Lavender Frost; I've been fiddling with the settings on my little webcam to try and stop flickering, so it's possible I've messed them up. I was thinking of trying my phone instead, next time. Might just need to play around with the webcam a bit more to get it set right. Time lapse sounds like a good way to show the progress of a larger piece.
vmrs; my two are just moggies, but they sure know how to make a noise when they want to! My partner's aunt has a purebred Siamese, they can talk!
Talisman; I wasn't born until '75, London in the Swinging Sixties must have been amazing!
