Usually quick and easy.


Making soft cover coptic stitch journals are a little easier than making hard cover ones but having not made one in four years it was almost as difficult. I could not remember how I did it. I managed to finish them but the process was not the same as the first ones I made. I forgot one crucial step that made them really easy.


Fun with metal.

Instead of going to the gym...



I spent the day making some barrettes.

I had every intention of going to the gym today. I was all dressed and ready to go when I thought I would just check something I was doing at my workbench yesterday. I spied the barrette blanks and just thought I would measure them to see what size I would need to cut the metal. Well five barrettes later I did not make my workout and it is now time to start thinking about making dinner.

Maybe tomorrow.
