a book and an apron

 carol at warwick press sent me this
her newest book
one of a series 
this one about dyeing
and living, too.
 i LOVE carol's drawings
maybe because i've felt this way
more than once.
this book is very special.
 and i'm proud to be the maker of the endpapers
some daylily and canada thistle papers
flew to warwick press
(do you know how crazy wonderful it is 
to be part of another artists work?)
 i know how silly i am
 to love this new apron
stripey linen with nice criss-cross
straps in the back
that are never going to come untied!
i'm going to try to 
copy the structure,
change the contours a bit,
and see where it takes me.
it doesn't haul on my neck one bit!
for you who have asked,
here's ian's work at bullseye
