|Block #13 - 18|
|I particularly like this one|
There were moments of "Well, 5 is also beautiful number... doesn't '5 blocks a week' have a nice ring to it..." (haha). It sounded particularly good while I was carving a full 9 x 12" block of tracery (oy); but, it's week 3(!), and I'm not conceding defeat. (Though I did carve a cute bird as the sixth and final block of the week to cheery myself).
And because I'll need the mirror image to make this the top of an aedicule for Philosophia,
I'll get to carve the whole thing all over again in reverse. (Eep!)
|One way of getting a symmetrical mirror image of a block is to print the first block directly onto a second one. and|
use that as the guideline for carving the second block, which is what I did with these roof ornaments
|put a bird in it.|
In other very exciting news, my aunt and uncle came to visit this weekend and help me with house projects. In one weekend, they made the giant hole that has been in the ceiling for over a year disappear. Incredible! And they supported my idea of a door in the ceiling with a doorknob that says "exit." I think this is hysterical - an inaccessible exit that leads nowhere - lol. I look up at it while doing dishes, and every time I see it, I laugh.

back porch earlier this week (thumbs up!)
