Just ticking along

 Nothing much happening, housework, a bit of repotting cuttings, wishing for some more pleasant weather....

We had a nice walk later on Saturday...







And I thought to try a different way of getting fine lines...just a fish from above...


I have cockerel and hen drawings to try....may be better...

We have been cleaning more bike bits too...they are pretty..


That is 1980s Italian design, and I have been working on some nice Japanese things too....


The research has taken quite a time, but it is interesting history. I don't think all of those who are buying these appreciate that, but at least some do!

I like the idea of your fine lines on black paper.

Spring and Autumn are perfect seasons for growing cuttings and repotting, I've got some ready to do here.

Interesting Weave...that is actually a print in black ink on white paper.

Ticking along - and soon teh clocks go forward.
Nice Campagnolo front shifter there - you see, I appreciate it, even if others don't!

I've still got gear-changing levers like those on my Holdsworth Mistral. I quite like changing gear like that.

Carruthers we have nearly finished building a 1948 Hobbs Superb for me, with downtube levers...

Bike Shed it is a Campag Triomphe from about 1985..we also have the rear mech, just waiting for the bolt for the latter and we will have quite a valuable changer set to sell.
There is art in the beautiful design of bike bits
