Sorry for the dearth of posts this week (seems to be a constant refrain this year – I hope next year is better!) but I’ve been down with a lurgy; DS2 is off school with it now too. Also, ever since I got my tooth root filled and crowned I’ve been grinding and gnashing my teeth in the night for some reason, and my shoulders, jawbone and teeth really ache, so I’m off to the dentist on Monday to find out if there’s anything that can be done about it. I hope so, because it is really getting me down. Anyone had this problem and found a solution?
In the summer I bought this box of celtic rubber stamps:
I haven’t played with them yet, but last week, not feeling like doing anything much, I painted the lid with a brush filled with a cartridge of silver ink. It’s just the sort of thing I like doing then – mindless but sort of meditative. I decided to take photos as I went along so I could see the construction of the celtic knotwork better:
Hope I’ve got all these photos the right way round! It was incredibly difficult to tell!
