Been very busy working on a piece for a new book


























Lots of techniques involved, even had to make use of this industrial sewing maching
























Challenging myself, pushing the envelope, as it were.




















Working under a magnifying glass to engrave an entire story

Challenging one-self can be gratifying but scary at the same time too

Challenging yourself is always scary but fun at the same time. It's so great to amaze yourself, don't you think? Nice to follow the process. I'm curious how it will develop.

Sweet greetz!

This is day two of my trying to 'release' myself back into my work again after an enforced hiatus, so I'm really grateful to you for sharing this. I feel much better for hearing that you feel this way too. Thank you! May I quote you on my blog?

It must be tiny. I work unfer a magnifying glass all the time. I"s easy once you get the hang of it. I'm sure you already have. Sorry to hear about your arm, I didn't know you hurt it. I pray it heals fast.

From viewing your past works- I know this one will be personal, special and creative-- and I agree about embarking on a new project - can be challenging and scary at the same time- but that is where the joy is found.

Challenges make you discover things about yourself that you never really knew. They're what make the instrument stretch-what make you go beyond the norm.
