Oh dear, I have been neglectful, haven’t I? My last post was almost a month ago! I’m not sure where the time has gone but, obviously, I’ve been busy with other things.
Knitting has, unfortunately, been very much on the back burner. I have done a little more on the 10-stitch blanket but I can’t get any more of the yarn right now (it’s a supply problem, apparently; it’s been back ordered twice now) and there’s just a small ball remaining, definitely not enough to finish it. I haven’t been working on the Lowtide cardi because I just haven’t felt like it! How’s that for the truth? It’s resting in a basket beside my recliner but I haven’t picked it up in a long time. For that matter, I haven’t even been sitting in the recliner much lately. Hmm… So what have I been doing, anyway?
John and I took a lovely drive, using back roads, all the way to Salmon Arm (a round trip of about five hours) a few weeks ago. It was a lovely opportunity to get out and look at our fabulous area and take a few pictures. It was also a great way of having some quality “us” time.
Apart from that, we’ve just been busy around here, gardening, cooking, cleaning, and painting. Yeah, painting. But not the kind you’re thinking of. Because of one of my customers, an amateur artist who occasionally has greeting cards made with some of his paintings, I was inspired to try my hand at it. I’ve been wanting to paint with watercolours for a long time, and have all the supplies (have had for a long time), I decided to splurge on some watercolour paper and give it another try.
It was fun! And nowadays, there are plenty of websites and YouTube videos with instructions so I really have no more excuses. Besides, I need another hobby, right?
