That is the one I mentioned in post 1384255. Made to my design by a Yorkshire-based blacksmith I encountered at a medieval fair, and sharp as some knives...

That made me giggle, but then I am a Yorkshirewoman and I'm not sure if that piece of Yorkshire slang made it elsewhere in the country.

That's a pretty universal piece of slang in the UK.

Today, my back garden was an adjunct of Santa's workshop, given over to the manufacture of wooden toys;



Still some work to do, but getting there...

The various elements of research and notions for the storyline in my weird fiction book are starting to coalesce into something resembling the plot I had in mind. I've now started adding bits into the general framework that are intended principally to add tension rather than to move the tale forward and that seems like a big step. The later chapters still need a lot of fleshing out - some of them consist of only the barest of event outlines but as a whole it's coming along moderately quickly.

Version 4.0 (hopefully the final prototype) Just the base, the seat, and the rockers to do, then it's on to testing with a convenient two-year-old.

The fruits of today's labour, my first attempt at slate roofing.
