Oh dear I did it again. No pattern yet and no posts either. Sigh! Life does have a tendency to get in the way. However it intervened in a pleasant way. So I have been enjoying myself a bit. To give you a taste of what I have been upto here are some pictures. I might decide to paint those orchids but no promises this time. I also want to paint the window looking into the bright courtyard. The picture I took is not great with the phone camera but I have it vividly printed in my mind. It looked so enchanting from a dark interior. We shall see, as I am really not an accomplished painter at all but will give it a try at some point.
