Little Houses and sketching


 A lovely weekend - I was able to do a bit more sketching and watercoloring.


I love little houses.

I have done more on my lowercase letters pattern set. I completed the final samples this morning but just didn't have it in me to take photographs. I was likely to throw the camera across the room. It's weird how you can love doing something... until you don't!

I got some of my energy back for it tonight and worked a bit on the layout for the .pdf. It's looking nice so far, but I keep thinking of more examples that should go in it!

To get out of the house for a little while I went to Office Max to get more books cut for my future Christmas ornament folded books. This time, I got someone who was willing to cut even the glued edges. It cost me a pretty penny, but it was worth it not to have to use my scroll saw to make uneven, noisy, dusty cuts.

I made a sample ornament tonight - a very simple design (Eternity) just to see how the size of the cut portion worked. It looks a bit like a flying saucer. More pictures later.

  1. Seriously, Office Max cuts books? Who knew?? (Well, obviously you.) Good to know.

    Anxious to see your Christmas ornaments!
