I'm tired I want to go to bed but M is working late, and I can't settle and be happy till he is home and accounted for. I have all ready written the post once and accidentally deleted it, so I'm afraid you will have to do with the far less witty and slightly substandard version which is this.
I painted the flower last night while M watched something boring about rockets. Not that rockets are that bad but when it comes to educational shows I prefer antiquities, bones, crystal skulls, mammoths, and all things generally ancient and crumbly, while prefers to watch How its Made, rockets exploding, or some horrendously mind numbing show about WWII. yawn. I finished the flower this morning with my favourite black ink pen, the flower wasn't meant to be white but just turned out that way, it has a sort of 70's feel that I quite like.
The fairy has been giving me trouble, its a sketch that I stained with tea and added a few details in ink. She was meant to only be a sketch, but when I tried to paint her on a music sheet she went all wrong, and didn't want to be a painted version so for now she is just another picture on my amassed pile of pictures I don't know what to do with.
more beady things, and recipes coming soon... and who knows I might even drag out my knitting again.
