New Computer

It has been a long time since I have written a new post. At the end of the summer I was in a mad rush to do as much as possible artwise before getting back to school. Then Sam, accidentally spilled water on my computer and killed it. I admit I was pretty heartbroken over it but we ended up getting new computers for both of us anyhow. The ragrug project is going ever so slowly in its development due to the lack of time when both Sam and I can sit down at the same time to do it. However, little by little we are getting closer to end of our endless roll of fabric for braiding and then we will beginning lacing the braided cords together. I have gotten excited over my own project of making sketchbook journals which has been a costly undertaking but the finished product is one of quality that I can be proud of. I have been doing a lot of looking for just the perfect paper that won't be too costly but is ideal for drawing, inking or writing on. Everything in the sketchbook is measured and cut to fit together, including the pages which are bound together with linen thread. I have posted two already on my etsy shop and hope to finish more soon.
