packing, unpacking, packing again, doing travel laundry.
I can make yarn wherever I am, thank goodness,
but since I like my summer days to look like this:
rather than this
it takes a certain amount of effort
to make sure I'm not mentally half out the door all the time.
Happily, while I was off on some trip or other,
my husband made me this fabulous light table:
fixed strips of LED lights to the bottom,
and put a piece of frosted glass on top,
remember the pleasures (and frustrations) of my backstrap explorations of the last year,
and work on this other project -- a thing that you probably already figured out about from the drawings in previous posts-- that i'm calling a comic instructional memoir.
(then re-writing and re-inking),
and hopping back and forth between contemporary and medieval technology,
but also scanning, fixing ink blots, deciding about color (yes? no? watercolor? digital color?), figuring out about printing (me? someone else?), actually getting them printed etc,
but eventually I hope I'll be able to talk about it more specifically
as I get closer to getting this new zine into my etsy shop to keep company with How To Weave A Bag On A Box.
And in the meantime, I will pretend my days are only full of these:
Happy summer, my friends!
