My mom asked me to make her a lantern for the entranceway at her house. She asked me if I could make something for her that is “about this big and this tall,” as she held out her hands at rough distances apart from one another.

I’m my mother’s son so I obliged

It’s an interesting challenge, giving me something to think about when I should be doing other things. Every time I think I’ve gotten it right, there’s something that just doesn’t work. Each iteration leads to a small improvement, but I feel like I’m needing fewer iterations than I normally would. Of course, I haven’t gotten it right yet so there’s no telling how long it’ll take me.
