January 20 work in progress
Slow and steady wins the race, right?
I spent a long time on that today, and my back is definitely feeling it. Toward the end of my hours over there today I decided to try a different chair. I think it'll help a little but not much, the desk is so darn low I can't scoot far enough up to the scope so I have to lean way over, and that hurts. It's been so cold in there the last few days (even with the heater blowing on me to keep the eyepieces from fogging up) that my hands have been just miserably cold. I tend to have cold hands anyway (as in "gah! don't touch me with those icicle fingers!" type of cold) but it gets downright painful, so I dug up some old pink cotton gloves from the back of my dresser and chopped the fingertips off so I can still grip the tools and ink the scrim but it's a big improvement. And fashionable too... ;-)
I also started sewing my Raks costume this evening. I made a pair of red satin harem pants. They are... very red. And very shiny. Lol! I can't wait to get the whole outfit done, it's going to look great. And my sewing skills are really improving!
Wish me luck tomorrow!
Happy Birthday JMB. I can't recall your email addy (it's on the other computer) so I am hoping you see this here. Sorry I'm so bad about emailing... :-)
