Loved the pictures from Seattle. The We Are Pilgrims prints look
stunning on the walls.

What a gift you've received (the DVD copy of the visit with Ito
Susumu)! It's amazing how we can learn by revisiting material produced
when we were younger. Thanks!

Gustave Dore has always been a favorite of mine for wood engraving. He
has an amazing body of work.

I tried to go to the info page for exchange #46 to see where to send the prints
and to contact the coordinator..but it takes me to the sign up page for #47....
so there is a foul up somewhere...please fix this or no one will be able to ship
the work to the coordinator... Like me they rely on getting that info at the
last minute as they did not copy it down ahead of time.
I finally got the thing printed...8 blocks and 10 colors but it is a very simple
image. I took the drawing for the white line print and did it in
much easier for me. I admire the white line printers but don't think I will be
one of them.
I am teaching my fabric printing class this Saturday so will report on how it
goes and add the books online... I have about a dozen now but of course some are
better than others.
My best to all

Barbara mentioned a problem with the info page for Exchange #46.
I'm not sure if there is another problem with the sign-up for Exchange #47 or not. I registered for the exchange last week and notice the participant list has not been updated since Oct. 14. I think I received an immediate confirmation that my registration had been received but my name hasn't appeared yet. I'm wondering if I need to re-register?

Inching towards completion.
Printing is done.
I briefly shuffled all of them out on the table to get out some of the major dampness--the rains have stopped and the humidity is less so they quickly feel less soft and cool--that means they're drying.
Then I cart them off to press between an old hardwood cheeseboard with several sheets of paper interleaved and another used hardwood board on top. Over this sandwich goes the old lithography stone I found in a Miami second hand shop thirty years ago. This whole stack then enjoys the living room bookcase next to the forced air heating vent. I'll undo the pile a few times to shuffle through the prints to even out the pressure and drying and with the last shuffle they felt dry and crisp.
Tomorrow they'll be trimmed, gone over for rejects and then signed. I said I wanted to be done by the end of October and I think I did it!
