All That Brass

Ack! Christmas is only three weeks away. I have projects to finish, presents to buy, a Christmas card to design, my wife to murder, and Guilder to frame for it. I'm swamped. I'm also worried I'm coming down with a cold. I started feeling sniffly and irritated throaty yesterday afternoon at work, so I sucked on a zinc lozenge. Today I feel fine. No idea what's going on.

Today is project day. Despite traipsing around all over Rhode Island, I was unable to find the bit of hardware I need for project #1, so I bought some sheet brass at the hobby shop, and today I'm going to attempt to fabricate what I need. I spent some of the time I was sucking on my zinc lozenge yesterday using Adobe Illustrator to make a pattern for what I need. This should be interesting. I made sure I got plenty of extra brass.

I also need to come up with a design for this year's Christmas card. I getting desperate here. I went through a bunch of photos looking for any kind of decent source material, but no joy. I'm even starting to consider collage. Well, let's postpone that until I finish the brass work.
