Q, R, S -- for the alphabet book draft

post #89
      I started these alphabet book posts on April 22, and today is the fifth part of the book's draft. I'm making slow but steady progress. I am also getting a better idea of how I would want the book to be.
      There are not that many particularly Appalachian Qs, or at least I haven't uncovered them yet...  But I haven't quit looking yet either.... As always, more photos will eventually be added to each post.

      This is an update, being written in mid July -- I just added the sandbox, being enjoyed by our grandson, with thanks to his mother for taking the photo.  I still need to add the rainstorm, to the letter R.  I may never stop finding things to include even though I am mostly just staying near home for this project.

  1. I love that you say you are going to add a sandbox and a rainstorm. It makes you sound so powerful, as if you're going to create not just the images but the things themselves.

    This is so much fun. Thank you!
