it's been just about a year since i filmed a segment for that's clever. i haven't heard a word from them since they were here. i have no idea when the show comes on. hopefully it hasn't come on already. that would be a shame. i guess i will have to email them.
the day they were here it was so darn cold. everyone but me was wearing their coat down here in the unheated basement studio. fortunately i had the lights on me and i was nervous, so the cold didn't bother me as much.
i didn't think the filming went nearly as well as that for craft lab. the producers didn't give me as much direction for preparation. things could have gone much more smoothly. i was in tears when they left. i got to show a lot of polymer clay, but they sped me up for the bookbinding because they were running out of time. this is the project i made.
i knew it was far too complicated, but that's what they wanted.
i hate that i couldn't show all the bookbinding. the binding is really important to me. if i had known, i would have made more step outs of the binding. as it was, i was too cold to even thread the needles! it was horrifying spending a ton of time while people watched me not threading needles.
sadly this book is lost. i last saw it at art & soul in virginia in may. i've looked everywhere to no avail. i hate to think that someone brought it home with them. i've lost a lot of tools, but never a whole book!
