At last, an update!

I've been ill for several weeks (boring, I know) and haven't been able to paint, then it was Christmas, woo!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, I certainly did, spending time with friends and family, eating far too much and having lots of fun. I made a few presents for people - a LEGO memory stick, that involved carving sections out of 2 six dot bricks then glueing a memory stick into the opening then glueing them all onto a thin 12 dot LEGO plate. I then put a message, some songs and a picture onto the memory stick and then sent it to my Secret Santee. I also made a Harry Potter wand memory stick for a friend at Durham Uni - that involved whittling a piece of dowel, cutting a slot at the hand end for a memory stick and epoxy resin-ing it in place then staining and waxing the stick after putting a loopy spiral of epoxy resin on it. I painted the spiral with gold nail varnish. Both were fun to do and the recipients were happy with them. I also made some Joy Division Oven Gloves oven gloves and pinny for another friend. Pictures of all of these, plus progress shots of a Bastion painting I've been working on will happen as soon as Dell deliver my new PC.

Yes, my rubbishy old PC bit the dust a couple of weeks ago, hence the total lack of updates (as well as illness and Christmas getting in the way). Dell have promised they are shipping my PC tomorrow, but I don't know how long it will take to get here.

Thank you for your patience and understanding, I am painting, and will have several images to post just as soon as I have my new PC.

Happy New Year!
