Attempts

I have a bad plow service so I had to shovel yesterday before going out for a swim. These scraps have been on the floor for about a week now (maybe less) and I have no idea what's going on with them.
Last week I used my hanji vat dregs up to make small sheets and tests. I was surprised by how quickly everything dries in my cold and not extremely dry basement—morning sheets were almost all ready by early evening..
I keep scraps in a small dishpan but have to empty it each time I make small sheets (because I want the tiniest vat possible to make best use of the dregs). I finally organized these scraps into usable versus must be repulped in the future.
I tore down an old piece to make this pocket blizzard. It's such a simple variation of the blizzard and I can't get over how quickly you can have your very own accordion files!
I finally bit the bullet and bought a new camera. You'd never know from my inability thus far to use it here. I have about a month to learn how to use the thing before I start traveling. This is the front of my scrap-happy dress.
And the back of it—you can see the white line where I had to double dip the same sheet into two different suminagashi rounds.
Always, always, always lots of offcuts and ripped out seams.
I wasn't expecting to buy one, but saw an "EASY" pattern last week that I couldn't resist taking home.
And this book has already given me headaches since last year. What does it want to be? I would like to know, too.
