Today I learnt a new stitch with crochet. It’s where you stitch a single stitch and then a double stitch into the same loop, skip a stitch, then repeat.
You end up with a lovely lacy type pattern. Finished article to appear here shortly…
Nothing exciting in this new thing – 2 out of 5 stars
Ok, so yesterday’s ‘new thing’ brushed off on me (geddit?), so today I took my brush to the canvas instead of the wall and knocked together a quick little Audrey Hepburn stencil type painting.
OK, not very skilled, and clearly copied from an image I found on the internet but still, I hadn’t painted for a long while so it was nice that this was a new thing for today.
For getting back into my art – 4 out of 5 stars
Had a fun day helping my friends Graham and Maria paint their new pad out in the sticks. Luckily, it was all white emulsion, and I got most of it on myself.
Fun, but I won’t give up the day job.

A week after making my first crochet stitch, the line turned into a blanket! I mean, not an attractive blanket, nor is it even fully functional as bits of it keep unravelling, but it’s the first project I’ve completed so feeling chuffed.
First attempt at Soy Candle Making following my workshop last week. I made red Dragons Blood scented candles in some small brandy glasses I picked up from an Op Shop. One for my friend Milla’s birthday next week and one for me to make my apartment smell nice.
