Hello Everyone, into another week once again. I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Up here in the North of Scotland we had fabulous weather, although very cold in the mornings, but for October it's marvellous.
Teallach and I had a lovely time on our own, and I've been playing with my sewing machine. Now I had been wondering how to tell Alistair I'd bought one, well I came up with a great plan. When he phoned to let me know what sort of time he expected to be home, he asked me if I'd had a nice time, Oh yes I have, I said, and guess what.... we've got another CAT. I could hear the explosion of words at the other end of the phone, I won't repeat them, so I shouted bye see you later.
I know he would be fairly annoyed by the news, actually there would be no fairly about it, but he could sound of to his pals and get great understanding and comfort from them, and by the time he got home and I said only kidding, I bought a sewing machine, he would be so relieved, that he wouldn't mind at all. Well a sewing machine doesn't ruin carpets and disturbs your sleep.
He arrived home with a face like thunder, but was certainly relieved it wasn't another puss, and was quite interested in my new purchase, especially as he wants me to make a waterproof bag for when he takes his fiddle away on the canoe weekends, so all's well that ends well, as the great bard said.
My make for today is me trying to be all arty and clever, so I don't know what you'll make of it, but here goes;
It's a canvas and as it is for the CB Colour Challenge, all the images are CB stamps from the Mermaid Queen set and one of the AYOS sets Fish, which I cut up individually.
I've used all sorts of mediums, there's Starlight Paint, Pebeo Dyna Paint, Pebeo Textured Gel. Imagination Crafts Shells stencil, Shells, ribbon, hessian, gems, and stuck it all together.
Here is the inspirational photo and colours.
It was fun to make and for once I had everything I needed to hand.
That's me for now, and thank you for all the lovely comments on my Christmas cards. Alistair is on the dinner making tonight, haggis, neeps and tatties, don't you just love when someone else cooks, mind you he'll be in and out with what do I do with this and how long will that take to cook questions, bless him!!
Take care everyone and see you soon.
