Well, things have been progressing slowly as of late. Between moving in, getting the house in order, and getting two businesses up an running, every else in my life has been getting neglected. I've been ready to start on the cover for my grimoire for quite a while now, but there have been two problems. I haven't been able to decide on a pattern for the cover, and I haven't really had time to think about it. But I've gotten together with some people and thought about the design. I'm not sure exactly how I'm going to get this level of intricacy, but the idea is this. Rose vines around the edge as a border, with two bushes growing from the bottom. Through the bushes you'll see cat eyes peeking out at you. I may also put in "Nefabit's Grimoire" in subdued lettering. Not sure how it's going to work yet, but we'll experiment over the weekend.
In other news, I have received my lectern! It's just as beautiful as I imagined it, and more! The only problem is that the latch for the lock is a bit off center, and to open it you have to push the top to one side. But Dad is going to move it over for me, so no problems in the end.
I'll get some pictures up soon, and when I start making the grimoire, I'll take pictures of each step of the process. Until then!
