This is another little section of what will eventually be one big map.  The end result is going to be much, much larger – even though I’m working as small as I possibly can-  and more detailed  than what I pictured when I first started. I can’t bear to leave anything out, not the dirt pile or the aluminum lawn chairs, or the raspberries  or the poison ivy or the big rock or the little gate on the corner with a fancy latch or the  tree near the asparagus patch where my mother so famously saw a great grey owl.


  1. I am enjoying your project and I love this map. it’s so fun to get lost in it.

  2. This map reminds me of being delighted as a kid by finding detailed maps inside the first few pages of a chapter book-it has the same feel….
