so i got my sleepy self outside and sawed down a tree, a sapling slippery elm this afternoon, and this is the luscious bark that i stripped. inner slippery elm, the stuff is like vellum or thin leather. lovely. this makes great paper, baskets, and maybe twine. we'll see what i can do with it. if only my hands aren't too sleepy, too!
