A little bit of this, a little bit of that...

I have a lot of projects on the go  at the moment and each one makes small steps, progresses a bit and then I turn my attention to the next one. Some of them even get completed!

Interestingly most of the projects have several parts, so I might get to hang the signs at IGA for the fruit bins and floor; but there is another bigger sign to install yet. Similarly with the new building work in Melbourne I will install Part A soon; but Part B won't be done until the end of the year.

So I feel like I am doing little bits of this and little bits of that...

Some of the this...

Once more I have been sorting type.  I have created a bibs and bobs kind of set of drawers - filling the type cabinet we recently bought with random and mis-matched type drawers. And I love it!

Barry planed all the drawers to fit and I am now trying to honour his hard work by filling them up with type.

Within the random set of drawers I have also created an "Orphan Annie" drawer where I am putting all the bits of type I come across that don't really belong to a full font. I love the random look of them and so want to print something with them!

And some of the that..

Barry and I have attached the two signs about the original floorboards in IGA. Not easy to select the right position, but ion the end we went for down near the floorboards so that people might glimpse them from afar and check themout as they get closer to the counters.

The lighting is tricky and it will be hard to keep folk from putting boxes in front of them, but at least they are there for the curious and inquisitive.


  1. Love the orphan letters. I think it would be cool to print with them. Even cool to print all the orphans of one letter together. A tribute to E or whatever!

    1. It would be great to just overdo it with one letter wouldn't it? Maybe for a card? Will think on that a bit Sandy! Go well.


I appreciate your thoughts and comments; thanks for taking the time.
