Starting all over again
A couple of weeks ago we had a lovely week in Northumberland, staying in an eighteenth-century farmhouse thatched with heather. We walked many miles along Hadrian's Wall and blew the cobwebs away.
We were certainly in need of a break - I have just finished my doctoral thesis after four long years! Hurrah! It's nothing something that we've often written about on here, but it has taken up a significant portion of our lives (and our creative energies) for the last year in particular.
So, now that's it over, we're ready to pick up our tools again. Jon has worked on a few commissions over the past year, but, apart from the odd bout of letterpress printing, I haven't touched any lino or wood, or our cutting tools since last December.
So, for the first time in nearly a year I'm planning a new print, which is exciting but also slightly nerve wracking. What if I've forgotten how?
