playing with printing

I have been playing with some lino block printing. Did some doodles/drawings based on mendhi designs. Then I transposed some of it to a lino block and printed it. Great fun. I will now try and do one so that it is reversed so that the lines are printed rather than the spaces in between. When I get to that point I intend to print onto fabric and embroider over it. If it works I will move onto a bigger piece with a repeat pattern.

Hawks Nest

WE spent a week at Hawks nest in the thrid last week in June. It rained. And rained. And rained. Havn't seent the like for a long time.

We did walks in the rain, drives in the rain and looked out the window of our hired house - which was right on the beach front but, yes, you guessed, we couldn't see the beach for the rain.

Not that I am complaining - it was very restful and we overdosed on DVD's and reading. And the sun did shine towards the end of time there.

A ferry trip across the bay to Port Nelson meant that I saw dolphins in the wild for about the thrid time in my life. The shore and river was alive with birds and we took many photos - I have put some on flickr - see the linkmore.
