Hello my lovelies. I hope everything is ticking over nicely in your world. Life is unfurling with interesting twists and turns here at happy stitching manor this week.
This morning I decided to run the gauntlet by visiting the supermarket to replenish food stocks. I got in the car, armed with nothing but a shopping list and plenty of self-determination. I wore gloves all the way through the supermarket. It can be quite difficult pulling a debit card out of your wallet with woolly winter gloves on!!! But I did it. The supermarket was well stocked and I managed to get everything but one item which was sunflower oil. So, we are well stocked until next week when I have a click & collect order booked. I was glad to get home after my outing.
As you may remember from reading my previous recent posts, I find myself quite distracted. I cannot seem to concentrate long enough to get anything done. Well today, I decided to launch a challenge. I am aiming to draw or produce some kind of simple artwork, perhaps something that’s even good enough to hang on the fridge, every day. So, I went upstairs to the drawer where I keep some of my art supplies and chose these and put them in a basket …
I may add to it in time but for today, I used a few things from this selection. I sat in front of the blank page for a few minutes trying to decide what to do. Then I decided to create these three purple blobs …
You must keep in mind that I’m not an artist. This is what I turned my three blobs into …..
Don’t laugh. My aim is to just play everyday and produce something colourful or not. I plan on using only the simple art supplies that I have on hand. I’m hoping my friend Sandra jumps in and shows us how it’s done.
The blobs were created with Gelatos crayons and then outlined a little bit with fine tip markers. I’m not artist but I found it fun doing something I rarely do nowadays. My forte is fabric-based crafts but it was nice doing something different. And it was fun pulling out art supplies including this art roll which I created a few years ago …
So, tell me my friends, how are you keeping busy in these strange times. Are you trying something you’re not too familiar with? Are you stepping out of your comfort zone? Who knows we may all master new techniques that we weren’t familiar with before our lockdown?
So, you can rest assure that Sarah, Maisie and I are all in good fettle for the moment. We’re staying home and perhaps slowly getting into some kind of routine that we can live with.
I guess that’s my report for today. I hope you all have a cosy evening doing things you enjoy doing. Until next time,
Let’s all keep on stitching and creating beautiful things that make us happy.
