I knitted a bit yesterday evening and painted today. The baby cardigan is coming on well although I have to say I'm never happy with the sewing together bit. There must be a neater way.
I haven't painted for ages and had a lovely time this afternoon sitting with the Spanish Grand Prix for company doing a little heart for a friend at work (well for her niece).
It starts with a piece of MDF
I undercoat with Light Buttermilk and choose the palette (Janet's niece is called Skye so she wanted blue.
Cue John, Ben and Steph, so the paints were put out of the way of little fingers and we went to see the chickens and pick some dandelion leaves for Flossie.
BURN 1 - THE TEA TOWEL (Oops left it too close to the gas)
BURN 2 - THE FINGER (Getting the hot pan out of the oven - I have a little Aloe Vera plant on the kitchen window sill - works a treat).
BURN 3 - THE BROCCOLI PAN - while I was decorating the heart I forgot the pan. That is not going to recover as quickly as my finger.
I think this is the time to sit back and watch the last bit of Inspector Montalbano which I recorded last night. It finishes after my bed time and, since it is in Italian with subtitles I have to watch it.
Another weekend has passed in the blink of an eye. I'll have to draw out the pattern for Thursday's class tomorrow after work. I missed doing my quilting this weekend but the house is sparkling. Well, relatively speaking, and I can always take my glasses off.
Until next week xxxx
