Folk Art Cockerel, House and Flowers - a new papercut

I thought I'd show you the very beginnings of my newest papercut.  As is usual for me, I can't really tell whether I'm going to like it yet, but I will persist and see how it turns out.  I'm a little worried that the cockerel looks nicer as a drawing than it will as a papercut.  I need to finish the bird to be sure.  

Here are the images from the reverse and correct sides.

Natasha Newton (The Blackbird Sings) blog feature

Over the past few months I've been answering some interview questions for the wonderfully talented Natasha Newton.  She's written an entire feature about me on her blog, which is a very big deal for me and a huge honour.

Here's the link to Natasha's blog and the papercutting feature.  Enjoy the read!
