ArtStation - Blacksmith's Hammer and Anvil, Leon Irving

Answer:  FORGED AHEAD

(Gotta love it!  A very artistic stinky pun to close out the work week.  Metal sculptures are not for the faint of heart.  You need to have an iron will, and nerves of steel.  And, you need to be able to take the heat, and not be afraid of getting burned.  Macrame is a lot safer!

All old reliable clue words today.  However, all of the jumbles appear to be new.  It took me a few looks to see “ferret”.  The other three I got right away.  The answer letter layout was an interesting eleven letter jumble.  I thought it was wonderfully cryptic.

Great cartoon of an artist’s studio.  Jeff always pay a lot of attention to detail.  The forge, the block, the anvil, the blacksmith’s rounding hammer, the blacksmith’s apron, goggles and heavy gloves.  Her hair is properly covered.  The lady is all set!  Great Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
