Wish I Was There!

I haven’t blogged for a couple of weeks as there hasn’t been a great deal to talk about. This week I should have been walking the North Norfolk coast but instead we have been at home, what with the dreary weather I haven’t even felt like going out for a walk.

I started a new blanket which I have called ‘Wish I Was There’, the colours remind me of days at the coast. I have been thinking about my holidays in Norfolk and a boat trip to the seal colony that we did a few years back, I got my holiday dvd’s out to reminisce. 

I think less is more with this blanket, I love these muted colours. Wish I Was There BlanketA couple of weeks ago I took an art course online with Louise Fletcher called Find My Joy, this got me really thinking  about  my crafting life and where I find joy, so I’m having a destash of the things that I no longer get so much pleasure from. It’s a natural progression, I like to try different things  so  I have started to destash my studio, but it seems so much more messy now than it was before. I still have a small Paragon SC3 for sale which is now on ebay along with glass and china painting enamels, jewellery making supplies  etc. There will be a lot more to follow.

I’m so pleased we built it, already the wildlife are using it, on the first day a blackbird took a bath and since then we have sparrows , dunnocks, greenfinches, a cheeky vole visting daily. 

I managed to catch the dunnock having a wash and brush up.

Enjoy your weekend, my destash and tidy mission will continue, I have to make space as I want to paint large messy paintings. 🙂
