I am looking forward to watching this develop. My chair is close to the monitor and I am popping some popcorn.

Hello everyone I am back from the camping and it was just what the doctor ordered. But I have good and bad news. The bad news is that I have to put the cross on hold. The good news is that I got another commision this one is a traditional calligraphy commission and I will make it a WIP and the one I am finished with it I will get back to the cross I promise.

This is for everyone who has been waiting for my traditional cross WIP I changed it because I did not like the way it was going, so here is the draft on wood. Richard, this is for you because you have been waiting so long.

The next step is to burn the image and then Annie will color it.

At last         Ive been waiting an eternity,well,really waiting for my trip makes days be longer,add that in summer days are longer.I hope its normal that on your knotwork there are miscalculations or the cross looks wonky,but the pyrography beauty will make people not notice,im sure,will there be more decoration or is it just a cross,you could add some grasses and rocks so it looks like in a countryside of Eire or something,Good luck

Thank you for going forward. I am watching, but I ran out of popcorn, so have reverted to chocolate.

I do my celtic work on leather, I like your woodburning.
