Yay for the new Midori Hirano album! Today I tried potato printing but it was quite unsuccessful. The easy part is cutting around the outline of the design but the hard part is cutting the potato evenly! Every time I tried cutting it, it was never even enough thus when I stamped parts of it didn't print correctly. Sigh. Lotta Jansdotter, this is not as simple as you make it seem! I think it may just be easier to buy linoleum blocks instead. After that, I worked on my painting for a bit and then I was going to make table napkins with that linen cloth I have but my back started aching because of my terrible posture. So, I read my new book for awhile in bed. It is called The Everlasting Story of Nory and I'm enjoying it. I have pasta and a baguette for dinner.
