Another week flown by

I've spent most of it finishing off my samples for the various workshops I'm writing/giving - I'll put a sneak peak up next time ;) Then I've been dithering, then I made or started to make a couple more books.




 Actually I've also wasted time (but greatly enjpyed) oohing & ahhing over artists books all over the net. An art group called Aos, pronounced 'eusse' which is Gaelic for a 'collective' of arty or poeticy people, is re starting up & at the AGM it's been suggested to bring along a couple of 'Artists Books' & I think that's what i'm making....ish, so it gets you thinking & distracted.


I spent this morning helping to dig holes for 6 apple trees, 2 1/2 hrs, nearly killed me! I left them planting some currants & raspberries, in the Community Croft Garden.




It's crooked, very disapointing, that's the pic & the middle bit...oh well.

To cap it all I'm doing a fundraising drive tonight getting people to their meals, so this is an ultra speedy visit!

Back soon to read up on you guys ;)

I love your samples! Especially the colors on the second one -- just gorgeous.

Planting apple trees sounds like a lot of hard work! I helped Mr. Sequin dig a few little trenches in his community garden plot last weekend, and it wore me out. ;)

What can I say, when I need to be color inspired, I just have to look at your beautiful colorful creations.

I can't keep up! One thing a day is enough for me. Your books all look delightful, crooked or not. Hope you've recovered from hole digging and look forward to reading about your workshops.
