A new project starting with a strip of 7 x 5cm squares, each with an alphabet letter somewhere. My intention is to continue with one square a day for the entire year, not getting ahead of myself or behind. A small enough discipline to avoid failure I hope. I will post off each week’s strip to a friend which should help my resolve. Week 1. A bent pencil, B lying down, C molding compound, D a blown splot, E masked, a gothic F, lastly a Pohutukawa tree on pebbly beach at Russell.
