It was too cold, just above freezing, to paste fabric to paper today. The garage has no heating and it was not so much my comfort I was worried about as the effect of all this cold on wet paper and fabric. If it continues cold, I will do it in the kitchen on Thursday.
I did finish off the student's handbook on Japanese-style Bookbinding which has turned into a monster with lots of graphics and photos and step by step instructions on how to sew a Japanese style book in four variants. It occurred to me that had I started a lot sooner, it would have been a nice touch to bind it into a Japanese book!! Never mind - next time!
That took all morning although I did manage to get the table mat warp wound onto the Louet and intend to thread up today as well.
Yesterday was a very enjoyable afternoon shopping in Cheltenham with Anne. Spent a lot of money but mostly on Christmas presents. I admit to buying two pairs of trousers and two cardigans. The cardigans were not essential but the trousers were since I don't own a pair which fit me. I am still losing weight although rather more slowly now. That has one advantage. I don't think twice about eating cake with my coffee when out!! But as that only happens rarely, it would be okay anyway. It has come to something when a visit to Costa coffee counts as a great treat.
Michael has a visitor today - must go and offer refreshments!
