We have had a run of drab days – grey, grey, grey. They are not conducive to painting and I have not been able to get down to doing any painting for a long time – I shall have to relearn!
But I do hate to sit idle and I find that I need to keep busy… I’m sure that it is because I am concerned for my very ill husband – the worse he feels the more I feel the need to do something. But now during the day I am either working or looking after him…
So in the dark days of December I made a paper maiche bowl and some knitted fruit for a friend.
And January evenings have had me knitting kids hats! I have a huge number of knitted items for kids now that I am going to sell for charity. Rather than sponsoring me walking/running/jumping I think it would be better if people got something for their money! I have got a small painting that is stretching me somewhat on the go – perhaps next week I’ll get it finished!
