Hard Working Drawings
When I have any kind of design problem to solve, I need to think it through by drawing. Today I needed to design a way to stop a strap from twisting where it joined the D ring of the bag it was on. I drew the problematic joining and then various ideas for fixing it without dismantling the entire bag. Tomorrow at work I will do the actual fix, using today's drawings as a guide. (see www.weRpiecework.blogspot.com to see what this bag looks like as well as to see others if you're interested.)
Later on I went out to the back porch to work on an old chair seat that I'm re-caning. Jesse was determined to be involved , not a good plan. He loved the whiskery strips of cane and would wildly dive bomb me as I was working with them. I finally had to put him outside, where he sat mournfully at the screened door staring in at all the fun. I finished the chair seat!
