A New Block Print

"Kinsey"
4" X 6" Block Print

Here she is -- my beautiful babe! A bit manic looking with one big eye and one little eye, but, truth be told, Kinsey was a bit manic as a pup. She just about did us in with her constant testing of limits! Now that she's learned to set firm limits and we've learned to honor them, we all get along much better.

I had a blast at the Haystack workshop! Bounced out of bed at 5:00 AM and couldn't wait to jump in the car and drive to Deer Isle. We carved all morning, then spent the afternoon printing. It definitely got me hooked on block printing. My husband, Tom, has some pine boards he'll donate to my cause, and my friend Judy has loaned me her tools. Nice to have a woodworker and a retired art teacher on my team!
