I have had a rough time. My dad died suddenly and I was horribly sick at the same time. I didn't get to spent much time with him over Christmas because of the cold. I was a remarkable and loving man.
His last woodworking project was to make me a book press. It's not finished, but I can sand and seal it. Part of me thinks I need to do something to remember him, but then I think the best memorial is to live life to the fullest. To enjoy everyday and to do well those things I love to do. As dad would often quote, "To thine ownself be true and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man."
With that said I am finishing one project - a Milanese moon - and starting two others. One is a tape lace pilgrimage labyrinth and the other is a Milanese Loki, both of my own design.
I also need one of these:
Too little time so much geeking.
