Ninety-eight per cent finished
I'm meeting a few of my best friends for lunch tomorrow, and I want to have this one ready to give Shelley.
I asked Will to get me some fresh X-acto knife blades from the art store near his TAFE college and he mistakenly bought ones for surgical scalpels. Having run out of X-acto blades, I tried the surgical ones and wow! They are fantastic — super-sharp and a teensy bit flexible. Big discovery.
This picture will just need a few lines to be smoothed out here and there, and there are one or two little breaks that I'll be able to fix invisibly.
Next project is a papercutting for a wedding present, and some Christmas cards, which I'll get printed.

You must have the steadiest hands! My hands are shaking and wobbling just thinking about that work.

They are pretty. Very pretty. I do wonder about the steady hands... maybe something for me to try after the four year old is asleep.

Bravo! I'm loving watching you develop these new designs. Cool about the new blade discovery too.
