Having an intangible heritage holder watch your every single move from the very start of making a book of beautiful paper he has had sitting around for a long time is bad for my nerves. Suddenly, what was so easy and fast w/crap paper from my batch becomes 10 times scarier when it's really good paper and the papermaker is about 5 inches from the book you have started to bind.
Today I learned how to spin thread from bark. It's ALL about the feet.
Tomorrow is my last full day. Time to run home for my last bits of this and that.
