Do you ever get all enthusiastic about a new craft but wonder if you should try it because you already have enough things to do? Over the years I have knitted, crocheted, done counted crosstitch, tapestry, scrapbooking, cardmaking, patchwork and quilting and stitcheries. I also did a pastel drawing life class for a while. As a child I loved Derwent pencils but could only buy them individually from the local Milkbar as a set of Derwents was out of the question. My favourite colour was Emerald green and I went through a few of those. I longed for a full set of Derwents and finally my wish came true on my 50th birthday. My darling hubby bought me the entire set in a beautiful wooden box. That was many many years ago now and I have hardly used them. BUT the day has arrived because I have joined the current fad of colouring in. My excuse is that I can trace some of the designs and stitch them! Good idea? Yes?
Before I start colouring I need to finish a couple of things. The last block from Jenny's BOM is now complete. I just need to audition some fabrics to start piecing the blocks together.
I have found some time to read . I am usually an avid reader but had lost my interest for some strange reason. My reading mojo is now back.
I couldn't resist purchasing some more 1800s repro fabrics to add to my stash. I need a 4th drawer now.
Righto! I am off to wash those fabrics, audition some fabric for that BOM and casually walk past that colouring book trying not to pick it up.
