thursday things

 boards for my little edition 
cut for me by bob
 my exemplar,
a tiny book, actually
 the laundry actually froze on the line
but i persevered! 
 one of hundreds of papers
 the boards after sanding 
and a little thingie from roz
for the closure
 three from this series
and this little mark 
makes me happy.

wonderful, they look like they will feel so comfortable in the hand. I got 2 loads of laundry dried outside last week which felt enormously satisfying - small pleasures!

Velma Bolyard said...

valerie, you know your woods! yep, poplar because it is from here (i didn't hew these cover)...(hew?)
jean, yep, it almost got to 30 degrees! but sunny and windy, so they dried.

Valerianna said...

ha! I know THAT wood well, its distinctive in its green banding. Used it for frames once long ago.
