This and That
I pulled out some leaves and flowers that were pressed into several books last fall (2009). They still had color so I soaked them in some water with a drop of vinegar. I rolled them into a bundle, steamed them and let them sit for a couple of days. I was amazed at the results.

I also made a bundle of fresh beet leaves but only got a beigey stained result. I will probably re-use this piece for another bundle.

I now remember why I don't like using a sketchbook. I change my mind too many times and the center of my moon quilt is now something different from the sketch. However, brainstorming and writing things down did give me some ideas.
