269 Horseshoe Nails - lino print

I was thinking about doing something completely different for today's daily offering (which I will save for another day) but I ended up making a selection of these 'staples' or 'horseshoe nails' or 'double ended nails', I have heard them called different things. Anyway I am using them in the garden so, I printed them, nine of them.

267 Gardening hat -Linoprint

This is the hat I use when I am gardening or generally sitting out in the sun, I am afraid this is the only other hat I have other than the fez I printed yesterday. Makes me wish I had more hats so I could do a hat series.

257 Fence - monoprint

Apologies if you were expecting another lino print of a cotswold place. I had a minor accident, I managed to burn my finger on a blistering hot countersink bit (don't ask) whilst building my fence, hence today's picture. I might get back to that lino series another time but I didn't trust my left hand to hold the lino while I wielded a sharp tool in my right, that would have been like asking for a trip to A & E!
