an evening’s work

Spent last night printing. I wanted to do some little note cards for my friend, Louise. Last year I carved a bobbin from her shop’s logo.  I figured she could use some new cards. There is lots of excitement at her shop – Red Red Bobbin, as Kaffe Fassett is teaching there at the end of the month. I’m sending a book to be signed. Kaffe is an incredibly talented artist and designer who works in a variety of mediums. I was particularly inspired by his book Mosaics, Inspiration and Original Projects for Interiors and Exteriors, published in 1999 by The Taunton Press. I’m excited about getting my book signed because I love autographed books! (This applies mostly to cookbooks and craft books and it’s best when I get to meet the author. I did meet Kaffe Fassett many years ago – long before he had written his mosaic book.) In fact the first Kaffe Fassett book I purchased was in 1989 – Glorious Needlepoint. Needlepoint – wow – there’s something I haven’t done for a long time.

  1. Hi Terri. Very talented! Loving your cards! 🙂


  2. I love them and especially the bobbin. What do you carve to make the print and what do you print on?


    1. Thanks. My favorite carving material is called “Easy-to-Cut Lino” by Jack Richeson & Co. I print on purchased cards, either blank or pre-made. If you check some of my earlier printing posts you’ll see some variety.


  3. I love love love the red bobbin! I think you’ll use this stamp many times over. Miss you, studio buddy!


    1. Thanks. It is awfully quiet there right now. Glad you like the bobbin – I want to do more in a sewing series. Your move right now sounds like a good choice. Carry on!
