Looking over at the bookcases in our bedroom, I see another kind of horizon. (Toy cat playing the role of stout Cortez, here.)
Carried materials to and from a workshop today. Realized that I don't use bags like this much any more - the handles stretch, and they don't carry much weight. They wrinkle differently from cloth bags, though, which makes them interesting to draw.
This is a folder I made for myself - just slightly larger than a folded sheet of letter paper. I've found that I like carrying a printed two-week schedule around with me, so that I can add appointments, jot notes, and plan projects, but I don't like how tattered the papers get in my daily travels. Recently, I tried a home-made half-size manila folder for a week or so, liked it, and so a few weeks ago I made myself something slightly more permanent, covering some heavy cardboard with bookbinding leather.
