Wool (2)

This weekend we printed the second layer of ink on our wool ball linocut for a business card commission - a layer of light grey ink over the pink layer to pick out the details of the strands of wool.

The next stage is to letterpress the text into the empty space, which will call for some patience and careful printing on the Adana.

On Sunday evening we spotted two hot air balloons drifting over the house. We often see them in the distance floating over Norwich (they take off from up near the university), but only rarely do they come over the house. Jon grabbed a camera and took some photos before they disappeared into the distance - they go quite quickly!

One day maybe we'll go up, up, up and away!

Hello Sarah and Jon! I've just found your blog - it's great! It's nice to see Norfolk from other peoples points of view and it's a good way to find new places to visit. Really like the 'wool', as a textile artist it's nice to see it in a less fluffy setting! will follow with interest...

I can highly recommend hot air ballooning. I was lucky to get the chance to do a flight over Edinburgh a few weekends ago and it was fabulous!
