|every year the same thing: oh no, it can't be, where did the year go....is it really almost x-mas? how on earth did that happen? what to do about presents is my main worry these days and as I dislike Shopping (for presents even more so: will she truly Like This? Will it Fit? Does he Need it? and so on) I have always had to resort to the hand-made gifts. This year is no exception and with the arrival of the Press I had a print in mind; of course instead of planning well ahead and actually designing, cutting and printing when I had more time (honestly when is that gonna happen...) I leave it to the kinda-last moment, but hey I managed: a bird lino print; so far 30 have been printed in black-and-white. I'm thinking about cutting another bird facing the other way and printing that one in a more seasonal colour, red and-or green |
Today on my lunch walk in a brilliant fall tree, against a dark gray sky, sat 50+ ('m guessing) black birds singing the most wonderful song into the rain sweetened air! And then I come here and you have this...these birds of yours! Perfect :)
the cloth...oh....the BEST
Yay Nancy, they are quite someting, aren't they; I have been dropping them off at friends' houses, the fun of it is absolutely wonderful
yes Grace, and I have started a new piece with the 'yellow birds'
(the commenting problems ughgh....it happens to me too on various blogs, at random it would seem; so it's not that I am not commenting, it's just not working: maybe the Universe is trying to tell me to keep my mouth shut...once in a while)
