paper, paper, paper!

What have I been doing this week?  In addition to obsessively dyeing scarves, I used this machine to make abaca and cotton paper pulp!

Such an awesome tool!  However, once the pulp is made, the human work begins.  Pulling sheets, pressing them, drying them–hours of physical work and I am POOPED!  But I do have about 100 sheets of awesome paper to show for all of it!
