I've not looked up what it is yet, it's very pretty.

You'll have to excuse the noise in the shadows - I'm using a K20 and it's noisy.

It's in the early stages at the moment and it's a bit complicated - once I've worked out how to put it together more easily and sorted out the niggles I might let you all in on the secret. Wink
