keeping going


These jugs were posted for sale individually in my Etsy shop yesterday.
 Over the past couple of days I've had nearly 50 views, one has been favourited and I've gained a follower....fingers crossed for sales...

I've just booked a table in my first craft fair of the year, in Ballantrae Village Hall on March 28th.

The Pirate is slowly recovering from the flu, but we're both stressing too much and raising our blood pressures...not good.  At least we are aware now, so we can do something to be healthier.

Our weather is here and there..two days ago we managed over twenty miles easy riding on the bike...and yesterday...

The view through the kitchen roof window.....Hail!!
 Nothing compared to the Eastern USA, but I'm still glad we hadn't put the washing on the line!!

Today we're back to cold with rain showers, which means finding inspiration for new cards and working more on the linoprinting.

So far I've been using the same technique as brass rubbing to check progress before cutting a little more from the lino, but now is the time to be brave and go for a wet trial with ink...

Sigh. I know I need to book a show to get my new weaving venture off the ground--but my pocketbook isn't up to it yet.
All the best wishes for yours.

Fingers crossed for sales and less stress.
A bike ride sounds wonderful - cannot wait until spring so I can be back on mine.

The storm here in North Carolina wasn't as bad as it was hyped up to be... at least not in our neighborhood!
That's a great idea to do a rubbing on the lino block before carving away more. I will have to remember that tip.

I think really bad weather is quite stressy but I don't notice it till the weather is better and then I feel so much more relaxed! I hope you sell one of those lovely jugs soon.

Stress can answer for an awful lot of things, hope everyone feeling better. The hare looks good :)

The colors of the jugs are truly beautiful, as are the shapes.

It just occurred to me, how bird-like the jugs are:)
