Alphabet Book


At the Uptown Art Fair in Minneapolis we bought this alphabet book for Reve, one of our Australian grandsons. The author had a booth where he was selling his books. He also had a number book. Now I wish we had bought that one too. He autographed the book while we watched. We were most impressed with his drawings and with the little stories that go with each letter of the alphabet. You can see more of his work at his web page, Nedobeck.

We went back to where we saw the butterflies yesterday but there were not nearly as many. We were just incredibly lucky to happen upon them at their best.

The Author must have a great imagination - you can tell just by the way he autographed the book. It will sure be a keepsake as well.

The pictures of the butterflies we just amazing. You were so lucky to get to see them all like that.

The butterflies are truly amazing. Thank goodness you had your camera with you. The letters remind me of the Letterland books DD used to "peruse" in kindgarten, only the illustrations are better.

Are you really going to try your hand at landscape quilts? Wow!
