These drawings were not made by Mabel's own hand but were made in collaboration with Mabel and under her general direction.

TOP - a faint yellow outline of Grandpa's hand and a bright pink outline of Mabel's hand

MIDDLE - outline of Mabel's shoe in lavender, her sock in pink, and her foot in blue (I only noticed later that we had put a LEFT foot and sock inside a RIGHT shoe)

BOTTOM - bird made from an outline of Grandpa's hand (the last of many drafts, each draft taking us farther away from the hand and bringing us closer to this admirable bird taking a step with one leg and turning its head so you can see both its eyes)
