I'm heading to Chile this month and feeling quite unprepared in terms of travel plans. I have agonized over this trip because I'm not a travel agent and am trying to mix business with vacation. But it's happening no matter what! So I'm busy weaving ducks and sewing paper while juggling applications, a sudden influx of board work, and studying (Spanish, paper history, etc.).
From the Hand Papermaking board retreat: intense, but great to hash things out in person. However, now there are hours of minutes to be transcribed.
Still trying to decide what to do with the newest duck: will I try suminagashi? Or leave it alone? Meanwhile, I need to make new brass stands for my little ducks. Full days ahead.
