If Yesterday Was Duh...


...then today has to be AAAARRGGHH!!

Why? Because I can't find my woodcarving tools. I need them for the lino I bought to use in the printmaking course I'm doing, and I can't find them anywhere. I found myself wandering around like Spot The Dog (a UK children's book character)...is it in with the paints? No. Is it in with the dyes? No. Is it anywhere to be found? No. Sadly, this particular story doesn't have the usual happy ending... I'm still looking, and that scream you heard was probably mine... so if you hear it again, don't fret, it's only me, still looking....

I rarely lose anything quite so comprehensively. Usually I can remember roughly the last time I used whatever it is, and can trace it back that way. Or it will be in a pile of stuff waiting to be put away. But of course, we've had visitors recently, and I've been doing more than my fair share of tidying. When I'm untidy, I know where everything is. When I put things away in a sensible, logical place, I'm doomed to hunt for it for weeks. In this case, I may even find myself going out and buying more. Just don't tell Robin!!

The image is a painting, Sunworshipper II, one of three so far. I is much bigger, III the same size as II; who knows what, if anything, will appear as the idea takes shape.

Maybe your lino tools ran off with mine. I know they have to be here somewhere!!!!! I'm trying to think who might have borrowed them. Still no answers.

I found my lino tools and yours are not there. If you were close by I would lend them to you.

Believe me, Andrew, if I thought you'd made off with my lino tools, you would be in *serious* strife. As it is, I found them...in the place they were meant to be, hiding under a large piece of paper which had no business being there... Unless, of course, you put it there, in which case, you're in trouble over that, too...
