…barely. I have a very, very sore throat and a runny nose that’s driving me mad. No work this week then. The library has been its usual self, full of friendly and weird people, missing books and sometimes found books too.
Really, wow is it possible that at the age of 24 I feel too old for homework? Being an apprentice is all good except for the homework. I still have one year and eleven months to go, I’m writing my third assignment and I feel like running away screaming and pulling my hair. I love the library, still.
I haven’t been all lazy with bookbinding, but definitely lazy with taking photos. There’s still the leather bound little book gathering dust on my desk. One day I will do some archaeological digging around and clear some workspace for myself along the way. One day, when my throat is all better.
Over a month ago I showed you a glimpse of something blue. It was a late surprise Christmas present for my friend Karen. Well, she received it in the mail, blogged about it, she’s even probably already filled it already too, but only now I’m posting my photos.
When I wasn’t a real bookbinder yet, just binding random books using various methods, I used to use lots of things attached to book covers. Buttons, rusty nails, feathers, pebbles, glass. All sorts of things. I don’t know what happened to that girl. I hope she didn’t grow up. I know she would be much better with the homework than I am.
