it's been a wonderfully sunny week and I've already shared many happy things it contained in my three previous post...thank you for your happy comments :0)
Here are four more :-
1. Visiting Patchings Art Festival with my Mum on Thursday ( Mums treat , thank you Mum ).
These tents are full of Artists and Crafts people displaying and selling their work, as well as demonstrations to watch and workshops were anybody could join in, more on that at the end of this post !
Soooooooo much talent and enthusiasm . It was very inspiring......
Loved the summery landscape we drove through too.......
2. Making a very small purchase at the Festival....small cards of lovely watercolours by THIS Artist.
I couldn't resist this view of Ilfracoombe, where we enjoyed a lovely visit last year.......
And I loved this colourful impression of Southwold....somewhere I've never been but hope to, one day.....
3. Wearing a summery skirt, painting my toenails and walking barefoot on the grass..... summer is here :0)
Sorry, not the nicest feet !
This was done in an hour so it could probably do with more work but it was a fun experience and so helpful to have an enthusiastic teacher to tell you exactly what to do. There were about fifteen of us in the class , all strangers to me, but everybody was very friendly.....I thought it was a great bargain too ( £2.50 including materials).........
I'm sure I wouldn't have had the confidence to even give this a try last year but all your kind comments about my drawings have changed that...thank you :0)
The lady who taught this session was Jenny Muncaster , do have a look at her great website. I just love so many of her paintings, particularly this and this .
And as you can see I'm still making granny squares....I'm up to 23....nearly half way ( I need 49 ).
This week has not been without its share of sadness and stress, despite how my blog appears , but it's such a blessing to have this space to focus on the positive and celebrate the little things.
Hope you Lovelies have had some happy moments in your week
