Hello......... I hope you are enjoying the weekend, here in the UK we have some glorious Spring Sunshine, such a joy after all that rain. I'm running a bit behind as usual with my round up of last month, but I got there in the end so here it is.
February: a month when the Spring flowers started to bloom here in the Summerhouse garden. With lots of yarniness in the form of hearts and flowers. Finally getting everything ready for the Craft club exhibition and doing a bit of stitching too.
A lot of change too with new treatments for my ME/Lyme disease fingers crossed they will help with my energy levels which are really struggling. Plus a bit of a electrical disaster too thanks to the weather. We finally have power again in the garage so the great laundry crisis is over. (both the chest freezer and washing machine are housed out there.)
Still working on getting the power back on in the Summerhouse but we'll get there, so a big thank you to my brother in law the electrician.
As for February's picture I finally finished it yesterday, it takes so long to get anything done with this new pacing program. I decided to continue the hearts and flowers theme, painting a heart shaped wreath of all the flowers blooming in the garden at the moment. I was just so pleased to see the Spring bulbs pop there head up after the miserable waterlogged winter.
Above is a closer look at some of the detail, I'm finding it quite hard to photograph my pictures well, whether it's the light or the white of the paper or the photographer !! I'm not sure (it's probably the photographer !!)
Here's the finished painting, it took me a couple of weeks to finished a little at the time when I had the energy. It's watercolour and ink, I'm really enjoying getting my paints out again and hopefully I'll improve as the year goes on, even if I don't it's good to be sticking to my new year resolution to do some art.
You can read a bit more about the individual makes from last month over in February's archive if you want to.
