in which our plucky heroine has a productive weekend, with various forms of learning and changes...
These are my results from the "Make Your Own Paints" workshop this Saturday afternoon, taught by the illustrious Eulalia. I look forward to experimenting with these, and using the ideas discussed in the "Scribal Design" workshop that Marya taught that morning... Actual size of shells is around an inch across, the mussel shell is about two inches. The transparent object at the top is a ground glass stopper for a cruet, the flat end of which is used as a sort of miniature muller, to combine the pigment, gum arabic, and water when preparing the paint
tried something new this week and set up the Levenger editors desk on the dining table. I might have to leave it there, it sure makes it a lot easier to draw...
Very annoyed, my iron seems to be coming apart: there is a rattling noise, I can see bits of loose bakelite in between the handle and the iron body, and the handle is very loose. I suspect that pixies dropped it, as I have not done anything so egregious. Since I use it for all my sewing commisions, I need to get a different appliance that is not broken... so...During one of my daily walks, stopped at Goodwill and found a used iron for $5 in their home goods. At those prices I can replace a lot of irons before even coming near the price of a new basic iron. Plus I picked up three new notebooks for my daily writing and some graph paper I needed for design work.
