Preparing a giant tablet for a demo. This one's 16" square, and will have holes the size of quarters and fat cords twisted on the Bradshaw cord maker. I want people to get the picture!
And then also some little tablets made of playing cards. I know it can be done, but I have never done it. If I am going to tell people it can be done, I should really do it myself. Now is the time.
I've run out of folded paper signatures, which means that before I make any more books I have to clear the decks and tear and fold. I have new paper on order, but until it arrives I'm folding some odds & ends of stock on hand.
And finally, after months of interruptions great & small, I'm back at the loom. You've seen this project before, but now it's advanced another inch. Hey, progress is progress.
But today's really big news, which heralds a change in everyone's attitude, and hints at possibilities, and lifts the spirit, is that after many days (4? 40?) the rain has finally stopped. There is the very slightest hint of blue. You may think it's gray, but I tell you it's blue.
And in the alter-world, the branches also stretch out, and an early street lamp glows green.
Tonight I will take the phone off the hook and watch a certain TV drama. January has its charms.
