Well, crap

Note for the future:

Do not work on calligraphy projects while ill with the flu.  Also do not work on calligraphy projects while in the initial stages of recovery from the flu.

I lost two weeks on a project because I was too sick to... well, to sit up.  Or to be awake for that matter.  So the objects on the calendar now literally being closer than they appear, a couple of days ago I attempted to recover the schedule.

Ruined it.  Completely.  Unrecoverable.

<sigh>

So a new piece has been cut, lettered from scratch, and I'm sketching.  No way in hell it'll be done in time.  It'll just have to be finished after the fact.  It was such a GOOD time frame I had.  Just not good enough to have three weeks whacked out of it by some vile virus.

Coughing up a lung + calligraphy = not good.

I think Jan and I were swapping stories about this a while back. I was working on an OSC scroll at the time I had bronchitis for Coronation, 3 years ago. Jan had flu, and was working on something else. Blecch...

I've done it before successfully. Apparently this time I was sicker than I thought.

You're so welcome! Sorry it wasn't all colorful and finished and stuff. But it will be (and I'll be able to make proper paint for it now.

Hope you liked what there was to see of it.

Oh good. Kayleigh got it back to me at meeting last night, so I can start the fun part momentarily. By the way, I went with all of the old spellings - I thought you are probably one of the few who might appreciate it, but I'll provide translations. :-)
