The theme for this year’s call for entries from we love your books is dot / dash. I have been playing with several ideas, and I have started seeing dot / dash references everywhere, like this photo of a moth by itchydogimages.
I have been toying with using morse code for text and/or decoration,
or using asemic lettering,
but the concept that has come along the farthest is a flag book using naval signal flags.
I have purchased paper and played with possible messages by cutting and pasting in Photoshop.
I will be basing the flag book structure on the instructions from Karen Hanmer’s article in The Bonefolder.
I am still sorting/clearing/putting away/reorganising tools and paper because of the new cupboard. And I actually got out this week on the snowshoes that David gave me for Christmas. (Mine are the small ones.)
We had several snowy days this week,
and with abnormally mild temperatures, it was actually pleasant to be outside.
Although a ski pole is not traditionally used with snowshoes, I feel a little more secure with one. Perhaps as I get more practice I won’t need it anymore.
I have also prepared another blog post for CBBAG Saskatchewan: only two books this week, but there is a bonus (linked) picture showing the swap gathering.
I hope next week to have a new book of my own to show you, or at least something more than digital ideas.
