nancy, she has work, just not in her field. yet.
valerie, the book feels really nice, and awaits words or stitches or thoughts from a reader.

Fine, fine book. Has secrets of its own, even without text.

V-congratulations to your Hannah; and hope that there is a job to use her skills. The 'book' will be a popular auction item - so much work in the creation. Wendy looks a little bewildered? Go well B

Velma said...

barry, thanks, fingers crossed! wendy would never have allowed me such silliness if she was still young

Congratulations to Hannah. Loved seeing your Blackeye Susans - one of the favorite memories from my childhood in NY. Oragami structure? Now I am going to have to research that! I just learned the Harding Flexible Chain Backed binding and that is very cool. Has Hannah shared that one with you? And life would not be complete with out a split rock book. Come see.

Velma said...

jan, hannah's bindings are traditional english ones, put me to shame. nice to have you check in!
