That wasn't so bad

I definitely print better in my pajamas.

There's something about rolling out of bed and straight downstairs to a waiting print setup that seems to make everything go smoothly. Maybe it's just that I'm not awake enough to see the problems, but I don't think so.

Anyway, the first color is down and the second carve has begun. AND I had ginger pancakes to celebrate. Heck, my day was a success before noon... how's that for good living?

I tried to darken the image of prints on the rack so you could maybe see what the first pass looks like. Kinda. Sorta. Maybe. Close. Not quite.


  1. I think you're going to have to leave your brain to science, Sherrie otherwise we are never going to understand how you work out the colours in these reductions. But please don't leave your brain for at least another 70 years or so. We're patient ;)

  2. I draw better in my pjs, must be a comfort thing lol

    from what I can see, its looking good :)

  3. I need much more practice!

  5. Thanks, everyone, for making me laugh and keeping me motivated. The second carving is feeling very "noodle-y," and I have to do it in small doses or my eyes cross. Film at 11:00.

  6. SHerrie--just read your comment on my rainwater collection set-up and I can only say, "You have got to be kidding."

    That is wrong in sooooo many ways. To whom should I send my letter explaining how the cow ate the cabbage?
