Day 1568

This is starting out to be one of those days... Two of my four cats have already been sick- one of them twice.

I have not heard anything from the library yet so I have no idea if I'm going to be able to borrow that book or not.

I need more gold leaf and paper... which I may not be able to get until Saturday. I'm going to try for a lunch hour run today, I think.

I experimented on a paperback with edge gilding... and it came out very well. Naturally the subsequent trial on The Flying Yorkshireman didn't please me as much. None the less, I'm going to see about working the cover tonight- provided that the rest of the day is not one of those "tear your hair out at every turn" days. If it is, I'd best keep my hands off the books tonight!

My ebay auction for charity did not go very high- I may have to do that again- but what it did bring I have already sent on. It will be a day or two before I can mail the package off, however. Thank you to everyone who bid!

I notice that, as few comments as I get here, I don't get any at Dreamwidth or Wordpress. No matter- I keep my journal for myself, not for comments.

Hopefully I will be able to take and post pictures tonight!

I'm pretty happy with everything except the edge gilding. I think I am getting better!
