Being Productive

Tonight I made an apple and black raspberry pie that is quite tasty. I used some of the raspberries I harvested this summer and canned apples I rescued from my dad's house. I'm also making bread--it's currently rising in the pans. I'll let you know how it turns out, in case anyone cares.

I've also been working on a book I've been making for a friend. Last night I assembled and sewed together the pages, and tonight I've been gluing sections of text onto the pages, scrapbook-style.

Of course, this process has not been without a few problems. Four of the pages need to be reprinted, and I have to go all the way across town to get it done properly (my inkjet is too sucky for this job). Then I've had a few glue situations. I may have to get one of those adhesive roller thingies. Finally, tonight I discovered that when I sewed the pages together, I left out a packet of them. So, I am going to have to very carefully cut the thread, pull it all out and resew all of the packets together. Blah!

Still, I believe this will all be quite cool when it is finished, and worth the labor intesiveness of it all. (Did I mention the typing and the layout?) Fingers crossed.
