facepalm



Never underestimate the crappiness of getting 3/4 of the way through a job only to discover that you've done it wrong.

I sat in my studio today, happily sewing books to Radio National until about 3.30, when I discovered that I'd not sewed on the endpapers, so they'd have to be completely unpicked and resewn. DOH.

Luckily, soon after, I had some visitors: Elsewhere and friend, who sat with BB and I in the autumnal splendor of the ANCA courtyard and supped wine and chortled. It was a glorious evening. Thus I don't really feel like it was a totally wasted day.

The use of visuals here is very pointed. May have to copy that sometime when I do same :-)
Glad you had company to assist in recovery though.

leave the endpapers out - pretend you meant it that way. or think of some new, funky creative way of putting them. Bandaids might be appropriate!!!
love your weeping lady!

Is that Jesus???

No can do, Ida... did half the edition already, and the endpapers are the only way to keep the cover on! It's a wrap-cover, and the endpapers are of the same stiffness, so a very necessary inclusion!

Never mind, Jesus (yes, it's him) knows my pain :)

I really did think that this was going to be a Dr Who related post...
