Active and passive sides of Pram Halfwood Press #128
Artist's comment: Lynne found the WeeWoodie Rembrandt Press online and ordered one. Then she discovered the Halfwood Presses and wanted both a Pram and a Galleon model. She settled on the Pram to get started and continues to think about getting a Galleon to share with friends on the island where they live.
