I have had lots of fun lately since borrowing these books from the library:
here are some of my experiments with doodles, colour, pens and paints....
and adding some colour.........
I'm trying to do something every day now and have been inspired by looking on Instagram at people I admire and their everday practise. One of the people I follow is @augustwren on Instagram. She does a painting a day and just looking at her work makes me want to draw and paint more.
I am still stitching away slowly on the fish embroidery and haven't much longer to finish, though with Christmas coming who knows what will happen :)

For me, creating is such an elusive process, sometimes it comes in a flash and all my energy is focused on it, sometimes it is very slow and creeps along like a limpet on a rock. Motivation can disappear. Life will get in the way, and even though you know how relaxing it would be to pick up that unfinished embroidery and do a few little stitches, you just can't make yourself. I have done a few little stitches and pulled out a lot.......

I started embroidering this, but school hols and Easter got in the way, so it still has a way to go before it's finished.
Some beautiful weather....some huge waves....some small waves....some boating on the river....some cafe time and some farm time
