Official tribute to the endangered letter ß
The best way to make good use of a Sunday off (other than having a proper breakfast and watching Shaun the Sheep, of course) is by piercing holes in my fingers. Ok, let's hope this won't happen ... but, I'm learning how to bind books today and this apparently involves using a sewing machine and hallo there, irrational fear of sewing machine needles, that are getting too close to my fingers.

If everything goes well (no trip to the ER), I hope to end up with the skills to make some Christmas presents, for the "I don't need anything ... if I want something I go out and get it" type of people in my family. They are always a pain to find a present for and I thought that handmade notebooks are personal and kind of unique and also useful ... yes?

Also, nothing new on the ugly Christmas sweater front. I couldn't find one in the second hand shops I checked, but it wasn't a total waste of time, since I found a very big and very cheap leather skirt, that will make great covers for my notebooks. I did get a very funny look for that ... guy buying a skirt that he could fit around himself at least twice ... but it would have totally ruined people's imaginations to tell, that it's for book covers and much cheaper than buying a new piece of leather. The truth is always so much more boring than the imagination and I'm very much against encouraging boredom.

So, bit more time to kill and then I'm off.
Happy sunday!
