Back down to earth

All the Christmas decorations are back in their boxes everything put away. Just the dolls left on the stool to be put away tomorrow. I feel always a bit sad when I have to take down the decorations. But another year will breeze past us again I am sure.

Sorry for the late wishes

I have been so tardy not getting round to wishing you all for Christmas but let me at least wish you all a very Happy New Year. I was very busy dealing with lots of things before Christmas and I have to say most of it was good things. One of them was my husband’s health improved a lot and many of his health issues were resolved I hope for now.  Anyway I hope you all have been well and had a good holiday season.
I have even started on a doll although I think I am bit out of touch after all this time. I don’t really like the face of the doll but I carried on making it. I may end up making another one hopefully that would be a bit better than this one. Here is a picture of my dip what do you think?

The doll is supposed to be a toadstool doll. Had a hard time creating the toadstool head.

Just a leaf

Found a few minutes to relax so thought why not do a blog post. I found a lovely looking leaf this morning and I seemed to have lost that picture some how πŸ˜„ but here it is the painted one. I used Inktense pencils for this

Everything stops for Mama and the kids

Today while driving down the motorway there was a warning sign saying to slow down animals crossing. I drove a few miles and was expecting to see some sheep or cows or horse or a dog but suddenly all traffic stopped and this is what I saw. I couldn’t get a proper picture as another car was in front of me but just managed as they crossed before the traffic started moving. They looked so cute.

New visitor

Well lets see if this works! I have been trying all sorts of things to get my blog sorted out. I think it might be aApple related as when I tried from the desk top things worked. I have managed to delete my doll club blogs that were linked to my account as we don’t use it and we have moved to FB.

I have been able to post this video of this cute little fellow that has been visiting us lately. I am only hoping he won’t bring his whole family once he grows upπŸ˜„.

Thought i would let you all know that i am not ignoring you. I am reading your very interesting blogs. Hope i can solve this problem. If you think you know how to just let me know how as i am totally at sea at the moment regarding this.

Not Forgotten!

Hello all, I certainly have not forgotten you all or fallen off the edge of the earth but life is such it happens. I have not been very creative of late however I managed to organise my colour pencils at last. I found this storage case in Amazon which can hold upto 73 pencils. At least now my inktense pencils will not rattle about in a box, which was so inconvenient. In one of the online classes the intstructor showed how she put a label so that she could at a glance tell which pencil was what colour. As you all know it is very difficult to tell what colour of green or red or blue the pencils are until you mix them with water. So she made a swatch of each pencil and stuck it in the case. I think I will just post a picture which explains better me trying to do it.

I think I am out of practice writing this blog. You won’t believe me that this is the 4th attempt at writing this post without deleting it by mistake πŸ˜„

Couldn’t resist

Today I went to the shops. I never meant to buy anything but couldn’t resist buying  this fabric ,story of my lifeπŸ˜„! It is so gorgeous that I had to buy it. The colour is antique looking cream with antique coloured embroidery and pearls and sequins on it. The picture doesn’t do it any justice . Now i have to think what i am going to use it for. Or rather what themed doll should I make it for . The first thought that came to me was a fairy queen dress or Cinderella or an angel. What do you think?

Passing time

I was sitting and talking to mum. There is not much i can talk to her about now a days as she cannot hear properly and she repeats herself. So somtimes i just sit near her and let her conversation flow over meπŸ˜„. Today i just sat and doodled while she sat and hummed to herself.

I will probably do the oranges again as i dont like what indid today.
