Slowly getting ideas for my next book.  I have wonderful wood, some leather and some poems.  But sometimes the overall idea is slow to form.  Guess I'll just keep staring at it until I know where to begin.  Practiced calligraphy for four hours yesterday.

Thought I'd decorate, add some color

A Home Without Books Is Like
A House Without Windows.  

From the BA-BR series
D Gangl is the BEST!!!   I was at wits end searching how to possibly cut the 200 insets for my Shrub-Steppe books and he helped me out.   He built me a jig.  It's magic.  I now have a new router, a nifty jig that is quick and perfect.  Truly, I stopped just short of sobbing with gratitude.

I'll spend two hours today speaking to students at a Kennewick Middle School about Book Arts.  Great fun.

Working on a new book.  Wood cover, irregular shaped pages.  Now to find the perfect quotes for the content.  Must be about nature.
Also found a new book on Book Arts at the museum in La Conner this week.  Will share this at the next meeting.
Trying to practice calligraphy 1 to 2 hours a day. . .
