Yesterday was Chinese New Year. Many of the plants in our yard are in bloom now, and all of it added to the atmosphere yesterday. We celebrated by having company over, and to finish off the evening, we had a dumpling-making party.
I took a break from making the guqin and resumed this afternoon. Progress has been much slower than I had thought. This partly because I’m routing a lot more carefully than before (and at finer step intervals). I’m almost done hollowing out the top panel to match the convexity.
