Completing a project

This is my Bird by Bird Journal. It involved 20 collages on board. A couple of days ago, I heaved a sigh of relief that I had finished it, and all it needed was to be bound together (I will probably use ribbons threaded through punched holes). But something about it didn't feel right. I went through it again and again, but I couldn't see anything wrong. Still, that little feeling proved stubborn. I took note, and trusted that it would give me more explicit information.

Last night, as I was going through mounds of paper and stuff, I saw it: painted and readied for collaging, one more board for my journal. I quickly counted my finished book and discovered it was missing one page. Now it's finished. Always listen to that little voice, especially when it won't go away!

    You book is wonderful. the cover invites you in and I imagine it is a delight to turn each page. I hope you post the binding too.

    the redpolls arrived in our yard this week. There were dozens of them raiding the feeders and I got a bunch of lovely pictures.
