they arrived early most days,
between 7 and 8 and stayed until almost dark.
this is rudy
shortly before hauling up 4 x 8 foot metal roofing
and here is my old ark of a house
in all her soft green glorious sheathing.
and then, well, rudy spoke with me about siding...
indoors i've been messing around with flax and stitch,
charlie's flax here with my stitching.
making lots of small papers
and reading this book which excites me no end.
i bought some old hemp from sri
which i love
and intend to put to good use.
notice the stitching here.
can you guess the stitching material?
notice these squares.
can you guess fiber and pigment?
they really look good together
i'd like a nice soft red with them.
actually, i'd like all the colors
i was a happy woman to order
a LOT of indigo
mould by britt quinlin, the paperwright
my next splurge will be a lot of flax.
i've used up almost all of the 10 pounds i ordered last fall.
and today there was a breakthrough of sorts
but i am too tired to mess around with blogger and pictures and stuff
so it'll have to wait some.
i've offered a friend a book, but if she doesn't want it,
i may offer it up to you all.
my first ever contest,
