Ted and I are busy as proverbial beavers these days. We're part of the Columbia Basin Culture Tour that happens August 12 and 13 (Saturday and Sunday) from 10 till 5. It's an annual event where artists of all kinds open their studios so the public can see what we do. Of course, you're invited!
Ted's out in his shop a lot these days, oiling things when he's not actually turning. You can see what he's getting up to here.
He's even polished up his welcoming reflecting leg at the end of the driveway!
Given we're experiencing extremely high temperatures these days, 37-38C, you could almost say I've got it made in the shade as I get to hang out and sew books in the basement where it's degrees cooler! (38C = 100F for anyone needing the conversion.) Here's the link to my contribution to all this.

|Coptic binding in progress. Eighteen needles going at once. My Home Ec teachers would never believe it!|
Meanwhile, no interface fires here so far. Lots of activity in and out of the airport (we live right on the flight path). Everyone's fingers are crossed and there's a good deal or praying we're spared.
