Short Post Today
Below the wire on the left and taking up a LOT of the page and a lot of the morning is a drawing of a place in our backyard where the woods is encroaching and we're letting it happen. More woods, less lawn. I wanted a drawing of unmanicured trees and bushes to enlarge and transfer to a large wood block. The resulting print will figure somehow in a print I'm starting that combines severely topiaried trees from France and wild nature and also the cemetery in which the topiary lives. It's part of a long-term series of parks and gardens that create unique topias.
Across on the right at the bottom are more sewing machine parts, this time a spindle and bobbin case (or shuttle) that is so elegantly designed and beautifully crafted. And to the far right is a recycled tin lantern that hangs on one of the posts of our bed and makes the bed look very Medieval to me. I do need about five more of these plus a wonderful Gothic-looking wooden and stained glass confessional door that I found at Tobacco Barn while buying the sewing machine. P is making grumbly noises about there not being any more room in the house etc. I'm mentally rearranging everything so that the door could slide right in.
