Many thanks to Wendy for organising our Friday Night Sew In and a very Happy Birthday to Wendy too. Pop over to her blog here to see who else took part.
Having wielded a decorating paintbrush in the morning, it was a pleasure to sit for an hour after lunch with my watercolour paintbrush! My pot of masking fluid arrived this week and so I was able to make a start on my next task which is painting glass. My first attempt was rubbish however attempt number 2 was much more succesfull.
So for Friday afternoon I painted the same glass but with a notebook behind to try and catch its reflections in the glass.
While that was drying I thought I would have a play with a little bird that I spotted on Annie's blog here using a tutorial that is here
Well he definitely needs a bit of tweaking - those legs are too far forward for a start! - but for a quick little doodle not too bad. He needs some ground to stand on too!
Apricots are in season here and I bought some earlier in the week, mainly to paint as they are not a favourite fruit of mine.
My evening was spent working on the quilting of my tablecloth which is coming along slowly but I am very happy with it.
It is certainly nice having it draped over my knees in the evenings - it has been very chilly here for May and we are still lighting fires in the evenings which is unheard of in May. Its been wet too although Thursday was dry and the sound of garden machinery could be heard all around the valley.
Well I think that is me all caught up for now - have a good week everyone and thanks again to Wendy.
