Really Random Thursday

This week there has been some glorious sunshine, and some equally wonderful sunsets:

I have been working on an etching, which is still a wip:

I think mackerel are really rather beautiful!

If you are curious how an etching is made, this shows the basics on a small scale, though there are additional ways of adding detail to your plate:

and if you want to know why prints are expensive, and how an original hand-pulled print differs from a high-class photocopy, you'll understand if you watch this series of ten(!) films:

And I have fallen behind in my fabric-related projects while I panic prepare for my space on the Travellin' Pic Stitch Blog Hop, on Saturday:

It's easy to get distracted by great posts on the Let's Get Acquainted Blog Hop - today's hosts are Chrissie of madebyChrissieD and Marit of Sew, love, live

Looking forward to reading about some other random happenings at:

  1. Oh Catherine - I might just have to pull my printmaking equipment out of the storage boxes it's all been packed away in since we moved to the States, your mackeral look great as does the sunset pic :) Thanks too for linking to my turn on the Blog Hop :)

  2. The mackerel look so good. I tried etching at a workshop here a while ago but have a long way to go before I could come up with something as good as that!

    Great sunset too.

  3. YOur etching project looks so cool! I love the sunset photo. Looking forward to your post on the Traveling Pic Blog Hop

  4. You have so many talents! I am glad that you share them all with us on your blog (to answer a question you asked in a previous post).

  5. Love your etching x ... mackerel are beautiful, I agree. I used to do etching a million years ago and I really miss it ... must do something about that, thank you for nudging me ...

  6. Thank you SO much for linking up. You always have the most interesting things each week!
