Hello my lovelies. I hope you’re all safe and well today. Here in my little corner of the northeast of England, the sun has been shining brightly for a few days. It’s also starting to warm up a bit. I’ll take this weather compare to dreary wet days any time!
Yesterday, I mention that I hadn’t been doing so good on the sewing front. Well last night I joined quite a few hexagons together. I’m at a point where I am filling in the edges of my hexagon quilt. I hope to take photos and show you the progress sometime in the net few days. It was a treat working on some simple quilt making stuff last night. I’m not giving up on my self-imposed challenge though. Today’s effort is another using cut out paper which I found stored in my loft a few days ago. The paper has a Japanese flavour to it. Here is today’s art journal page …..
Using the paper which was stored in the loft reminded me that I have another little bin in my room with scraps of wallpaper that I might be able to cut out and use as subjects for art journaling. I see things much differently now. The recycling holds a great wealth of stuff that I can use as tools for stamping, masking and as surface protection. Whoop whoop.
You may remember that I planted a few pansies a couple of days ago. Well I was outside watering the pansies this morning. They seem to be growing great guns. The sun is doing them good.
There’s not a lot to report nowadays. I’m not going anywhere, not meeting up with anyone and to be honest everyday still feels like Groundhog Day the movie. After five weeks of lockdown, I am starting to feel a bit more motivated. I feel safe in my home, I’m eating and sleeping well now. I’m finding inspiration in paces I never thought I would.
So, my friends, I guess that’s my report for today. I hope you’re all finding your way through the fog that the invisible enemy has created. For this evening, I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy doing. Until next time,
Let’s all keep on stitching and messing around with art supplies.
