Hello everyone, how are you? I finished my portrait yesterday in art class. Here she is.
I am not sure whether to show you the picture it was taken from as the faces really do not look alike at all. But I suppose for a first attempt it will pass. I'll be brave and show you anyway.
I can't begin to tell you how much trouble I had with her face and those eyes, well you know the story about them. There are things I would like to have done differently but will put it down to experience and hope that my next portrait will be a little easier and the likeness better.
A couple of days ago Stripey decided to revisit that land kittendom and took great delight in playing with a toy mouse in the bath.

Since I've been letting the chooks free range, they like to spend a considerable amount of time on the back deck. They love bread crusts and sometimes I'll go out and sit down to feed them. The only thing is the dog loves bread crusts too. I'm trying to feed three animals evenly, no easy feat when two chooks are trying to fly up to peck bread out of your hand and the dog is slobbering all over you.
Such an attentive dog, only when there is food involved though. :)
On the subject of bread, I took delivery of a new breadmaker today. Our current one is making very strange noises and it's only a matter of time before it dies. We make bread in it everyday so it is well worth the cost. I must say it has rather spoilt us having homemade bread as I really dislike most bought bread. What is called wholemeal bread looks like coloured white flour with a few husk thrown in. It would never fill my hubby. Well I'll be off to read the manual so I can learn how to operate it.
Bye for now,
