Dragonfly mica book

I’ve made one similar to this before. I just love these old nature illustrations. I download them from eBay and print them on my Epson printer. It reminds me of looking through my great aunt’s old books back in the 1960s when I was really little. You could entertain me with a set of encyclopedias and nature books for hours.

I learned something from this book and the last mica-covered book. I will never ever peel mica again. Once I began, I couldn’t stop it from flaking until I had peeled most of it off. Either it will go on whole, or not at all.

By the end of this coming weekend I should have half a dozen new journals to put into the gallery. Then I am going to concentrate on stitching and quilting, although I’m going to have to be careful not to go too crazy and hurt my hands. I’ll use the sewing machine some. I love love love weaving cloth strips together.
