The good, the bad and the not very smugly

A two steps back forward and one back and am up and down week.I have enjoyed thinking about my bread and butter and arty pieces for the course, mostly that's the good. I am able to come up with product ideas. One I'm a little worried about, whether putting the head of the statue of liberty in place of the torch she is holding, is a good idea, is questionable! The second challenge is making the piece(s) which could be good or bad. Seeing the National Trust tomorrow to discuss my ideas, which I am looking forward to as well. The other not very smugly is the failure of my new 3d printer to actually print, which is very annoying, and (might) teach me to be not so smug about using technology. I

It's a 3D world

That would combine 3d printing. Wrote some more of my new book, The Battling Barringtons. Should get to the 15000 word target by this time next week. Going to post the opening section here to see what if any reaction I get (well none right now as the website isn't ready to publish!). Researched how molds were made, and the different
