We're rounding the winter corner! I know, it doesn't seem like that some days and I'm sure we'll get slammed again in a week or two (like we did last week). But it's nearly March, nearly spring, nearly Daylight Saving Time. Bring it on!
This means that someone who starts bugging me for her five or six o'clock dinner at four stands a reasonable chance of not bugging me till five. I hope.
Apart from Cork Popping and Birthday Partying it has been a mostly stay-within winter. I did hit one estate sale and found this rather tall, Royal Doulton Winston Churchill mug for a dollar. It was chipped and cracked enough to not even merit that, but a little black paint on the chips and a tall enough placement to make those less noticeable and I had a nice container for extra tall brushes!
I've been playing with my brushes, too. In this post I showed you a few rough drawings for Christmas ideas for next year. (I figured I might be more inspired to do them when there is actually snow on the ground versus in July at the cottage!) Here's one in watercolor. To be honest, I'm not totally happy with him yet and will probably do him over but it's a good start. He needs shoe buckles and a more water-colorish feel to his suit. And a pom pom on his hat. And a cat.
I started this one last summer and finally finished it. See what I mean about motivation to do holidays in the summer? Took awhile, didn't it?!
And while I was in the mood, this happy one.
I also finished this wreath which is actually Jemma's. Her original
photo said "spring" which didn't fit so I swapped out with one of my
favorite words! I love this wreath and I think I'm going to do this one
over too, in Christmas colors!
I totally bombed the duo in the tub and this little guy looks nothing like our Little Big Guy, but he is a cute anonymous baby!
I've been so totally absorbed by felting I will probably get a repetitive stress injury from all that poking! Here's my bluebird of happiness (perched on some of my favorite books!)
More to come. I have bunnies and cats without eyes and noses because this is where I mess up most! But you've gotta try! Meanwhile, I'm starting to spring up the house!
