So this is how it is now.
And this is how it was when I should have probably stopped.
I don’t know, what do you think?
I just can’t seem to stop tweaking things sometimes and then eventually I forget where I started from.
I think I just wanted it to look older and a bit worn and not so pristine. Not sure if I succeeded or not without ruining it.
Anyway, these two squirrels are enjoying a cup of nut tea on a huge fly agaric mushroom! I used another piece of English sycamore for the wood burning, it’s a large key ring.
I got a bit het up before when I was reading the news. The pope’s visit last year cost the taxpayer £10m, this was for just a few days. Apparently that is around about the same amount it costs the government (after timber sales) to look after the forests for a whole year. No disrespect, but I know which I would rather have.
If you haven’t already signed the petition to stop the government selling our public forests, please sign it here. You can also email your MP. The website makes it really easy to do and call me sad but it’s quite exciting to get a fancy letter through your door with ‘House of Commons’ embossed on the envelope (not cutting the stationery budget then?).
Right, feeling much calmer now, which is good considering I’m about to get hold of that pyrography machine again!
