To reply to a few comments:-
sb - I'm hoping to get a new laptop, but in the meantime I'll look into getting a stand or some sort of holder for my Fire tablet, thank you.
Heather - There's a Mens Shed in Bridgwater, apparently, I did mention it to husband some while back but he wasn't interested. In any case, it's closed currently.
Hazel, good idea to crochet blankets for the RSPCA.
Mrs Tiggywinkle - I do know about blankets for babies ideally not having holes in (so their fingers/toes don't get caught), the design i'm using is a very close weave. And i'm using Stylecraft Special baby acrylic DK, no wool fibres. But thank you.
Husband is really getting into the idea of wood carving, he's done a couple of practise pieces and come to the conclusion he needs some other attachments for his multitool thing, he's ordered some. He's after some stencils now, to make letters and numbers for house signs (we need one for a start). He also picked up a thick piece of tree trunk discarded on the roadside and brought it home, he's going to cut it into slices and use those. It's all keeping him busy and he seems to be enjoying himself.
Some of the watercolour drawings I've been doing lately:-
First time I've tried a sunflower. It's not right yet, I hope to do it better with practise, as I'd like to use one as a card topper.
A get well card for a dear friend. I've drawn quite a few lily flowers now, in different colourways, think they're my favourite flowers to draw. Although I don't actually like lilies much - well, it's the smell I don't like.
I tried drawing a rose, but just couldn't get the shape of the petals right. I'll get there eventually, will watch a few more youtube tutorials.
So glad you've had a good week. I do like your lavender picture, I must get back into watercolour painting again! And your hubby seems to be enjoying his new-found hobby. When can we place orders for house signs? lol. xxReplyDelete
Sounds like an excellent week and your paintings are brilliantReplyDelete
Love your paintings. We had a lovely house sign made from a whole log. Last house and much bigger than current!ReplyDelete
The lavendar painting is brilliant Sooze x Bluebell is scared of horses!ReplyDelete
I don't think perfection is the idea on your flowers, YOU did them that is the idea. Wonderful.ReplyDelete
What a lovely post. I'm so glad you've had such a happy week - here's to many more of them.ReplyDelete

Sounds like a good week, love the watercolours particularly the lavender. Thrilled hubby is settling into his new hobby, long may that last.ReplyDelete
Lime is a good wood for a beginner carver. Some wood just chips and looks untidy no matter how much you sand it.ReplyDelete
