Finished my application for Irish nationality 🇮🇪

@select about 35 minutes.
5 mins to measure and cut the pieces and 30 mins to get the angle right on the short piece

I made some art 

Phew, it took me scheduling myself time to work on this to actually finish it

I intended to do it the usual draw-reverse-carve way, like you would need to do if you wanted to print words, but I decided maybe I preferred it "backwards" when it came time to carve it. Now I'm not so sure but it was good to try and see

The inking itself was pretty rough too, I'm out of practice, but it felt good to get into it again 🍂🍄🍁
