Today I was thinking about this prompt and decided it could be fun to try to draw the squirrel who visits our garden, climbs up the bird feeder pole and stretches across to get food from the feeders. But then as I was sitting in our living on the first floor, he suddenly appeared on the windowsill next to me. He had a precarious climb up the railings, though I’m not sure what he was trying to achieve with this, and then climbed back down again! I managed to snap a couple of pictures of him on my phone without scaring him.
Sure enough he then joined his mate at the bird feeder and some more serious stretching occurred, but seeing as I couldn’t get any good photos of this I decided to draw him on the railings. Here he is
I was very excited yesterday evening when Hannah brought me back my pottery painting from her birthday party. Here are the finished items. I’m especially happy with the plate and really look forward to using it soon.
￼ Hannah also brought me a cool thank you card that she had coloured in. I love the vibrant colours she’s used, and the shiny bits that are part of the card. They really bring the picture to life.
I’ve not done much craft recently as I’ve not been feeling well and did not have the brain power or motivation to think about crochet, but i did make two cards. I got the idea from a calendar, then drew a squirrel, which I cut into different parts and then cut those parts out of different pieces of patterned card. I’m so pleased with how it turned out though it was fiddly to do! It s fun trying to pick the colours and patterns that would work best.
Then I decided to make a slightly simpler card with hummingbirds on as i had some shimmery cards that I thought would work well. While laying the pieces out they overlapped the edge and i decided that it would look cool if they did that once they were stuck down. Again, I’m really pleased with the final result.
I can see me making more cards like these in the future.
