It has been a very, very busy few weeks here. We had family visiting for a couple of weeks, and Master 6 and I also had to travel to Sydney for an appointment (yeah, that was an expensive little soiree)!
But now things are quietening down a little. I am still in my jimmyjams at 9:30 am, and that is ok! There hasn't been much craft going on here though. A little stitching [as Master 6 refers to all endeavours using my sewing machine...."Mum, what are you stitching?", and when I make the machine go faster... "Mum, you are a really good stitcher"...so cute] but you'll have to wait for another day to see that project, some crochet (those gazillion ripples are almost finished....just in time for a 40+ summer :-) and some painting...yes painting!!
There are lots of galleries up here and it is hard not to have dot paintings on your mind when you see them pretty much everywhere you go. The shopping centres, the restaurants and in the homes of pretty much everyone you meet. The kids even do them at school! So I had to go to the local discount store and get me some canvas and try this out for myself. You'd be surprised at how relaxing dotting is, even with the ever-roaming tentacles of wee Thumper, hovering, just waiting for you to leave an open paint tube too close to the bench edge. He has a radar for such things....it is like an inbuilt homing device which is activated the minute you leave a 'danger' drawer, or cupboard or door open. He literally flies across the room to investigate. It is uncanny! But I digress. Dot painting...me likey! My product is not going to win any awards, but I like the colours, and patterns. If you need to know about the symbology....just accept that this is what the inside of my head looks like on any given day. Random!
Have a lovely weekend...
