Welcome spring and if you live in the northern hemisphere, autumn. I'm glad we are heading toward sunnier weather, warmer days and longer daylight hours. I'm longing for spring flowers in the garden, no mud under foot and a fresh breeze that brings the smell of blossom like Jasmine.
I finally finished my bright coloured granny square cushion, it's a little higildy pigildy, but then it's that sort of cushion. It's not meant to be perfect in how it's made or how it looks. It's a cushion made for comfort and cheer.
I believe I might starting making a granny square throw with the wool I have left over and there's plenty. It will be a little (or big) project to pick when I'm having a cuppa or something to keep my hands busy after tea at night.
I've started a new painting, a portrait! I am wondering just what I might have taken on! As you can see, my lady is faceless. Last night I was in the zone and sketched the outline and started painting. Today I had to perform surgery on her, including liposuction, as she looked so badly proportioned. I fear I have given her the shoulders of a swimmer, her head may be to small and I'm sure there are many things which my teacher will be helping me correct. However I'm fairly pleased with how I've started out all by myself!
While I was folding up washing today, I was thinking about how fortunate I am to be in the position where I can pursue my interests. Not only do I have the time, I have eyes and hands, a creative mind and a peaceful environment in which to work. I'm very lucky indeed.
I hope all is well in your world.
Have a lovely evening/day,
