30 minutes creativity per day… Days 102-107 Wipeout! Day 108! Back in the swing ☺

Dratted head cold!   Mind you, I did, when I was awake, manage to watch some creativity on TV – including catching an episode of Landscape Artist of the Year 2016 which I had missed the first time around… to find Moy Mackay was one of the artists!  Love her felt artworks!   Nothing so … Continue reading

30 minutes creativity per day… Day 101! Take a flower…

A little late placing this one up on my blog – Day 102 consisted of being at the Gift Boutique Workshop, coming home, getting a large headache as my head cold took hold, and being prostrate ever since! So much for my holiday time over Easter, as it’s now Easter Monday….   However, Day 101 … Continue reading

30 minutes creativity per day… Days 96 – 99! Expanding on the prototype. Bag bling / bag charm.

As you saw in my last post, I have a jumping off point now to refine and / or change from. I decided to do both ☺   Using the original pattern, I wanted to make a more stylised baby bird – which meant shorter tail, larger head, and smaller wings. The thin paper I … Continue reading

30 minutes creativity per day… Day 72! I started really early today!

  This morning, the sun was not up yet, but I was. Walking out to the back of the house, I noticed the floor was glowing in the bright moonlight – a glorious moon was setting in the west!   Yep, I couldn’t resist ☺   I was out there taking photos, having fun trying … Continue reading

30 minutes creativity per day… Day 71! Dark red begun – rather matching the sunset ☺

  Day 71 saw me starting on the dark red stamens – my what a “pain” it was. The chart was hard to keep track of, and what was on the chart, was not on the picture of the finished stitch-out which came with the chart! Therefore, since this is supposed to be relaxing, I … Continue reading

30 minutes creativity per day… Day 70! Only dark red to go ☺

  Added more today, and after each colour I took a photo. I’d say most of you could work out what it is now ☺        

30 minutes creativity per day… Day 57! Revisiting weaving pattern.

  I showed you on Facebook the other day the woven pattern with the owl face within it on selected panels in the design:   Today, I’m having a little play further with that idea.   The basic pattern is shown below, with a bit of shading to attempt to make the weaving a little … Continue reading

30 minutes creativity per day… Day 23! Playing with filters ☺

Thank you so much for the wonderful comments about my little fairy friend – I very much appreciate it.   Today has been exceptionally hot, so I didn’t want to be drawing with pencils and sweating on paper (not a nice thought!).   So, I’ve taken a photo of some of our sunflowers (currently flowering … Continue reading

30 minutes creativity per day… Day 16! Done! (with a little trick)

It’s just as well I can laugh at myself… did you notice in yesterday’s post I left off a stitch at the base of the plant? I didn’t, until I came to stitch next to where it should have been today! Just another little booboo on top of the others yesterday ☺   Well, I … Continue reading

30 minutes creativity per day… Day 15! Stitching out cross stitch flower bookmark.

OK – take two on this post… I accidentally deleted the tab where I was working on the post! I know, it’s late at night…   Well, as I suggested to you in my last post, I decided to stitch the flower bookmark out in different colours to that which I used in the original … Continue reading
