Day 392 – (AD 1,554) – 24.5 Miles –Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Today the rainy season begins. Thunder and lightning.

Guess what? The Pack equals 4.


Here’s hoping the hurricanes miss us completely this year.

And this morning I pedaled my Schwinn 170 24.5 miles. My totals are now 33.277.7 miles; 53.555.4 kilometers.


I am now located at 51.45% of the distance to my next destination point.

Something different –

Atlas Obscura’s article by Anika Burgee dated April 6, 2018 “Enchanting Illustrations Carved From Old Books” caught my eye.

I am enthralled by the work of illustrator Isobell Ouzamn.

 “My altered books happened accidentally,” Ouzman says, in an email interview. “I came across a cardboard box full of hardback novels one day, sat outside in the rain. As a lover of books, I brought them home to dry out, and repaired some of the bindings, determined to use them in some way.” Instead of reading them—she wasn’t a fan of the genre—she began to draw on the first page of one of them. “I don’t quite remember what brought me to start carving into the pages, but a few months later I had my first finished altered book. That was back in 2012. Ever since then I have been developing them into what they are now, trying to find the best way to build them.” 

 And I can see the progression of layers as they can apply to the quilt work that Andy and I attempt.

Our new Cranes Quilt Update - Quilting Stage 3 still underway. We like how this one is taking shape. Also, even with the same white background it is amazing how so very different this new one is from our other completed Cranes Quilts.

A key point, I believe, in the process of creating a quilt is the naming of the quilt. (Just my opinion.) We're working on that.

And for the next Cranes Quilt, we're examining fabric choices for the Cranes to highlight the design. Very interesting.
