Hello my lovelies. I hope you’re all enjoying a lovely weekend. The sun is shining brightly here but we’re not doing much more outside than walking the dog, going back and forth to the bins, planting some pansies and taking photos of my challenge efforts. It would be the perfect day for families to participate in outdoor pursuits.
I’ve spent most of the weekend doing numerous loads of washing. But while the washing machine has been whirring away, I have been messing around with art supplies. We dragged-out rubber-stamping supplies to add to the mishmash of supplies I can use to meet my self-imposed challenge. So, without further ado here is day 18’s effort …..
And day 19’s effort …..
I can finally admit that messing around with art supplies has tested my resolve but it has been very therapeutic as well. And I must admit that my creative juices are finally started to flow again. I’m not sure what I will be creating once this challenge is over. And if the lockdown is extended for a few more weeks after this current three weeks, I will definitely set another challenge. Stepping out of my comfort zone has been so good for me. Everybody should try this once in a while.
I mentioned last time that my Maisie was going to have a haircut. She was very hairy and it was making her rather hot at times. I was quite worried that the hot weather would set in and make her even hotter making her little heart work harder. When this opportunity came along, I couldn’t turn it down. So, here’s Maisie a couple of hours before her grooming session …..
And here she is now …..
She no longer looks like she’s wearing Ugg boots and therefore she can grip the floor again!
It’s been a pretty good weekend so far. The weather, although not very warm, has been bright spurring me on to get a few chores done. That means more time to do a bit more art journaling this coming week. I haven’t done any sewing apart from working on a few hexies all week. I must correct that soon.
So, my friends, I guess that’s my report for this weekend. I hope you all have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy. Until next time,
Let’s all keep on stitching and messing around with art supplies.
