Blessed indeed are the cheese makers but so too are the cheese eaters .... and surely those who love cheese love books too as, with a glass of wine in hand, they surely go together well. Envious about your workshop at the Japanese Paper Place. Have just worked out that japanese paper could be my favourite printmaking paper. Don't know why it has taken so long to realise that. Have fun Velma.

susan, that's great to discover! i keep learning more and more about paper, too. what kind do you like best? i'm looking forward to tomorrow's workshop, indeed.

Now how did that happen? All I can think about is good wine, cheese and a pile of books next to the fire. It's nippy here today. Hope you are enjoying your workshop.

Velma Bolyard said...

barry, yep. this cheese is so amazing, and i think you saw bits of the books?
robyn, nippy here, only spring nippy! peepers singing, so a fire is still welcome. furnace is on now that i'm home from a fabulous workshop!
