Hearts. I know.


But considering how late I've left these, and that I still have to get envelopes before I put them in my shop, I don't think I can be accused to trying to cash in on Valentine's Day.

Printing with lino blocks, stamp pads, phone books and what I've learned is a book nipping press. It makes letterpress seem like space-age technology.

Really lovely. Where there's a will there's a way, right?

I definitely see these as saying "I love fiber/fabric/sewing" and could be much more versatile than just plain ole valentines!

Beautiful! I'd love to see your press in action some time. And let's go visit Jeremy's print studio soon too!

Very pretty hearts. Love and hearts should be all year round, not just the commercial Valentine's Day when people are "forced" to do something.

These are gorgeous. I love the way you've made a 'how-to' drawing into something so pretty!
