A fun exercise?

Well I did it, thanks Chittle Chattle It was very hard. I had to draw with my left hand and I'm right handed. To add insult to injury I couldn't look at the paper, I was looking at myself through the bathroom mirror and it is 1.37 in the morning! No need to lock the bathroom door, no-one else is up, even the cats have gone to sleep. Before you ask, no I will not be posting a picture in my Journal Blog which I now realise I haven't updated since we came back from Keswick. 
Very remiss of me but in my defence I have been busy, doing some embroidery/felting/knitting/crochet/dyeing projects, playing with the cats who will insist in getting in on the act and going to lots of exhibitions in Durham and Northumberland. 
Last week I was playing with metals with Alysn Midgelow-Marsden, great fun. I have over 21 small samples which are being backed and presented on small hangings so I have a record of a very pleasant two days. Sorry the photos are on their side but I just haven't had time to Photo-shop them. This is very much a work in progress.

Dying thanks to  Myfanwy
That's all I have to show you today, there will be more photos to follow. Thank you for reading my blog. All your lovely comments are read and much appreciated. An especially big thanks to my friends who keep my creativity going.

It looks as though you have been having lots of fun. "Dying" to see what you do with all those gorgeous colours....(sorry!)

Hope there are some potential ATC's among your metal samples.

Well done! That's one out of the way - only another nine to go.

Did I mention they must all be done at the same time? Therefore you must now set the alarm for 1.37 am


(Only kidding) You've certainly been busy.
