Happy, Happy Dancing.


Thanks to a very generous and talented friend, I have a new toy. This lovely thing is a press, and it works like a charm. I've already taken some prints off it using lino blocks, and the next thing to try will be some etchings that I made in Inverness. Just in case you're reading this, thank you, thank you, thank you!! I could tell you who made it, but then I'd have to kill you...this was a limited edition of two, I'm told, so Anonymous will have to remain so.

A good time was had by all concerned in Edinburgh and Livingston, I feel refreshed by the short break, though the three mile walk nearly killed me...who put that mountain there...sigh... I slept most of yesterday, but this afternoon, I am hoping to print the screens that have been sitting there for a couple of weeks. Always allowing that it doesn't rain, of course.

I think I can guess too! It looks very interesting, maybe annonymous would like to start a little business on the side?
