Not printing today. Instead, I'm working on restoring a chest of drawers for Louise. It's a lovely piece (I'll post photos later) but it's clearly showing its age and travel. Pieces are falling off, the front legs have broken, and chunks of cock-beading have come loose. Also kind of nice to be working on furniture again. This is something I know how to do. Although I could probably live without the smell of hide glue; good thing I'm working outside.... But after 2.5 hours of fiddly dicking about, my ADD kicked in and I needed a break. Besides, Karl and Steph are due home this evening, and I have to finish dishes and laundry before they get here.
