i dood it.
With the help of my trusty 2-shot Bialetti [bought in Pienza], lately filled with Motta Oro, which I actually prefer to the excellent but insanely expensive Illy...
[and yes, that's a 4-shot pot in the background. That one belongs to hub. His capacity for caffeine consumption inspires awe.]
...and this sentiment [i bought two signs at Bagno Vignoni - this one, which is on the door to the bedroom, and one that reads "studio", which is now attached to my tiny office]...
and a lot of swatches, I seem to have written a book. I sent it to my editor just moments ago, and though there is still lots of work to do*, the biggest part is done.
*Introductions to write, illustrations to direct, galleys to proof.
But mostly, today there is dancing in my house. Happy happy happy.
