edition brewing

these modest flax books 
edition of 7 
are what all that stitching and coloring and changing of rough flax into soft...
what all that has transformed into.
it's coming as soon as everything is sewn in/together.
i am really really excited.
it's a
FLAX NOTION
or two,
coming soon (relatively).
(on the table, my favorite self made bone folder and new handmade watercolors)

How fun! I'm always so curious how these papers 'feel'!

Velma Bolyard said...

nancy, flax feels like glass leather that rattles to me, when it's stitched it feels like sueded cloth.

Nancy said...

Oh wow Velma! Cool.

Hazel said...

Holding breath in anticipation. Hoping to see more of the watercolors...

hazel, i took a break from the edition over the weekend, made some paper, had a couple of sinus headaches, walked a few miles, and hopefully this week i will get it done.
