The Book I Want to Read

 Ok, ready for my last Austin Kleon reference for quite a while (I promise!)
This time it has to do with his suggestion to "write the book you want to read."
 
And so I am.
 
Time has been spent working with words and layouts and storylines.


 It also involved making the doll I wanted to make. Of course she had to be wooden but also both tiny and sturdy enough to toss in your pocket. 
 
 Getting back to the "drawing table" was perhaps the scariest thing involved for me.

 
 Of all the projects I've ever taken on I have to say this has been the most enjoyable one ever and I highly suggest everyone do something special they want to do. You'll be so glad you did...I promise that too!
 
Over the next few days I will be sharing the pages of the first in a series of "Patchwork Tales" to be written throughout the days and months ahead.
Hope it brings you a bit of the fun I've had creating it.
Happy Reading Wishes!
