I can’t believe it’s Wednesday again. I’ve been so busy and engaged in what I’m doing that time just escapes me.
Monday morning was taken up with the boys, and mum’s taxi service. Then in the afternoon I decided to tidy my den, specifically the bookcase to add an art section for my growing collection of art books.
Tuesday I decided to remodel a much loved bag. The bag was a mother’s day present bought at a craft fair, it was made from upcycled denim and had a fox head on the front and tail on the back. The tail had split and worn away and the bag as a whole was looking rather shabby. Having taken it apart, I doubted I would be able to make anything remotely nice and almost didn’t bother, however, a whole day of sewing (and thinking about how I was going to do it!) and I’m very pleased with the result.
And now it’s Wednesday.
Since art class last week I’ve been working on my watercolour of The Gatehouse at Brockhampton Estate, which we finished in today’s class.
Started: 19th June
Completed: 17th July
Two more classes until the long summer break but I think I’ve learnt enough so far to keep painting until term starts.
