SHE'S A SHADY LADY....
This week's post seems to feature the same image four times over! But there are differences, I promise you. We have a shaded seating area which has been the most comfortable place during these high temps and so that is where we've spent a lot of our time.
I was doing some crochet one evening but even with having the bulk of it on the table in front of me, it was just too darned hot. So I swapped to squares instead:
The following morning with coffee instead of Peroni! I found a great tutorial on YouTube about keeping the edges ruler straight and it worked - here's the link if you want a look!
Then when my hands got too hot to handle yarn I did some watercolours following another tutorial, I thought I'd do something to fill the gap on the JanCave wall.
And tried out my new brushes at the same time!
It was fun doing some different stuff - there's some good tutorials about painting shells, too many to link. I had a play with some pens and ended up altering the flowery one a bit:
And here's the only different desk shot this week - the dining table! (the JanCave is way too hot atm)
I sent for some toppers off ebay to make some quick cards for the WI and am using up scraps - woah, steady on there, does that get me extra Brownie points from the cardmakers' Guild?
Nowt fancy but pretty enough.
I hope you've all managed to cope with the high temps whether you're a Lizard or an Eskimo, hope you're all ok xxx
