I came across these while I was sorting a bunch of stamps and cutters. They're made from wooden blocks used for Indian Block Printing. I stamped and put wash on them to get some idea of what they looked like in positive. As far as I can remember I have never used them. They might be interesting on bowl rims or mugs.

I'm not sure where I got them, possibly at a Gina Halpern (sp?) workshop from a VERY LONG TIME AGO! There are the initials GH in addition to my name on the back.

Cleaning has been a journey of memories. I keep finding things that I haven't looked at or even thought about. Part of this is because of the way I moved my studio over here. I moved all my decoration equipment into this house when P. was terminally ill in 1997. I sort of got organized when I installed the kilns. Then I sold my back house, which I had lived in for close to thirty years, and just moved everything as quickly as I could. Now in addition to reworking my studio so I can enclose part of it for the winter, we are also reconfiguring the entire first floor. That ought to keep us out of trouble for the winter!
I managed to drop a pound of ground beef and a bag of turkey on the floor when I was searching for something in our little deep freezer. I'm very happy that Winter and the cats didn't make off with the packages. The potential for unlimited disgust is not to be considered. So we are making calzones and sauce tonight and I have started turkey soup for tomorrow. Oh how I love my crockpot!
We are having a slow drizzle of rain with some heavier showers which should continue until tomorrow. Every little bits helps. We have been careful enough with water use so that we should be okay if we have even small amounts of rain.
Woody, or as I have named him Harrelson, is in his hole. I am sure he is eyeing the mums I have been putting in as great additions to his lunch counter.
Enjoy the day.
As always, thanks for stopping by.............*s*
