Last night I didn't feel like watching the box and sewing, so when my son had gone to bed and husband was busy doing work on the computer I decided to get out the sketch book again and work on the design for the quilt that is in my head. The other day I had done some preliminary drawings so I combined them into a bigger piece to get the feel about how the design will come together. Then when I had finished the sketch I decided that I would get my new paints out and have a play with some colour.
I must say it was 3 hours of pure bliss finishing this. The ipod was plugged in I listen to an endless array of music and just made art. I don't think for one minute that it will win awards but I had fun creating. I would always draw as a kid and I think it only stopped when I became a teenager and became more judgmental about myself and my abilities which didn't meet my expectations so I stopped (how stupid we are we we are young).
Off to buy some more paint brushes this week I think some more pages just might get filled while I am home with the tonsil boy.
