On a gorgeous Sunday afternoon, feeling breezy and relaxed, I finally got together the things I needed to embroider some linen. It's a project I have been wanting to do for a while, so it's a joy to actually begin. I spread myself out on the floor, with my light box, sheets, pillow cases, patterns, two kids and a packet of felt pens (aargh! Not near Mummy's sheets! No!!), and got artistic. Well, no, I just traced - I am not a good artist, by any stretch of the imagination.
Joshua thrilled me this week with his first drawing that wasn't a blob of scribble. This is a picture of Blue, from Blue's Clues fame. The blue blob is her body and the balloon part is her head. The artist's endeavour is now hanging in pride of place, under the Superman magnet on the fridge. Up high, so that the artist can't get it down and wreck it. He's a temperamental little artist.
