It’s been a productive couple of weeks in the kitchen and the craft room.
I’ve been doing lots of baking. Ostensibly in preparation for Christmas. In reality not much is left …not even photographs. Not a major issue at this early stage.
You may have noticed that I am partial to the odd minion or two, having posted some videos recently. I have extended to making one! Sans pattern. This little fellow stands about 10 cm tall. I’m pretty proud of it.
Roses in hand, he’s off to a new home tomorrow as a birthday surprise.
Yesterday I spent half the day with a small friend doing some painting and making banana ice cream.
Between us we are creating a tryptich. I primed the three canvases with left over house paint. Hence the odd colour. For the first one I added a background of earthy colours as a point of contrast to the design itself. By the time we were ready to create it was dry.
We spent the afternoon drafting the design. Then we made a stencil of it so we could transfer it to the canvases. On the right hand side is a closeup of the first work in progress. Your eyes are not tricking you. They are buttons!
It has been a busy and productive week. Watch this space for progress of our artwork.
