Out Of Focus! :(

My mantra for 2019 is ‘focus’.  Focus on the main game, which is for me is visual art.  I’m battling though, mostly because I have ‘tennis elbow’ and a torn tendon of my dominant arm.

So once again needlework has been my primary creative outlet, this time because for some reason it hurts less than drawing or painting…

I have been attending a small painting group which has helped me to at least attempt a work in ink – a work in progress.

Here are some pics of my creations in the past month or so.  Next time there will be a work of art to show – there will, there will…

For Maren Due On Australia Day

My great niece was due on Australia Day which explains my choice of colours! She was born in England more than a week late but healthy. 😊

 

Going With The Flow

I decided I needed an embroidery travel case.  I just started stitching on a remnant and did whatever came into my head.  I wish I could paint that way!

Then I decided I needed a lightweight travel wallet!  Made with scraps and a zip in my stash.

And a grandson wanted a blue t-shirt with a Paw Patrol Plane – what’s a Nana to do?!

I made more items but you can have too much of a good thing, can’t you?!
