      Am enjoyinfg tying all the loose ends together on this big sprawling project, when the 100 books are printed I will handcolour each of the 38 songs with a dash of red so that will be 3800 dashes of red + stitching the bookmarks into the spines, then there’s the cards, T-shirts & posters! The 100 fridge magnets to go inside the xmas cards are all ready to go & just started working on the roughs for the card this morning x fingers there’s a good pot of flannel flowers ready at the wholesale nurseries on Tuesday as I prefer to draw flowers from life.
