Starting the Lino Cut.

 It's just a trick of the light, but where I have carved away the lino it looks as if it's raised above the drawing! I hope that I can manage to carve this image as the flowers are quite fine and delicate. You can enlarge the photo a little by clicking on it.
Here I've carved out 3 leaves and 2 of the flowers, but unfortunately I had to stop here as I slipped with the sharp cutting tool and cut one finger quite deeply. I'm usually more carful than that, but of course it is Friday 13th!

Ouch! I hope it heals soon. The best tools are usually the sharpest.
