A rainy Sunday

A rainy Sunday is sometimes a blessing. The rain stops me from trying to run around and do all the things I forgot to do on Saturday. So I stayed in and worked on a couple of pieces of silver. One piece will be a ring which I'm going to try and imprint with a texture (by squashing it through a mill). The other is a brooch which I'm going to try stamping text into.
The problem with these two pieces is that you do so much prep work... sawing, filing, sanding... and then you do the fun part at the end. If you screw it up then, you've wasted so much work. So, fingers crossed.

Toby stayed in too, packing up parcels of books to send around the world. There are lots of patient people out there who have been waiting  for the second run of his book Alledaags to come back from the printers. It will soon be available at American Book Centre and Lambiek in Amsterdam.
