Question: What do you do when your long-awaited and long-coveted tool arrives amidst heavenly song and enveloped in a patchwork of colourful postage ephemera, just to make it seem even more special and important?
Answer: Giggle like a little girl!?! Toss packing peanuts around like they are cloud nuggets from heaven!?! Do a happy dance that most people would attempt only after
discretely checking for candid camera fixtures?!
Ahem - no, of course not, that would be silly!
You open it carefully, so as not to cut yourself, extract said tool sensibly and dispose of said foamy peanuts responsibly, cleaning up as you go and being sure not to accidentally throw out the spare blades.
Oh well, maybe next time - teehee
Thank you to Elke at MelbourneBookRestoration for giving me a shove into finally taking the plunge to get this little beauty. I'm so glad I did :)
Lots of lovely leatherwork to be done at the workbench this summer :)
