Busy busy

 So - hello.
Aplologies for not having posted at the weekend. So to compensate it's a bumper blog today. Lots of photos.
So first is the progress I made with Thermogauze - I concentrated this time and managed not to burn it. Still quite a bit of work to do - but at least this first part is ready to go.

Last Thursdya DH and I both went to The Beetroot Tree for an open evening and managed to decorate a spoon each using alcohol inks and beads. For those of you who know DH and me I think you can guess which of us made each one.
 And as I'd booked Monday off too I went back for a 2 hour session in the morning and tried my hand at mixed media on a canvas. It's getting there but I still have a little bit of work to do. It was a great morning and a great way to try new techniques.

 And here is a cushion I made for a friends birthday - it was a little bit late - but she was really pleased with it.
And below is a little bit more progress with my altered book. I've just painted it with gesso and will be adding a coat of red acrylic with some gold added. I've no idea how this is going to turn out - but that's the whole point of trying new things.
And for the very cheeky ones who look at this blog - you can all me maam in future as I'm now the Queen of Comedy. Yes Miranda Hart won 3 Comedy awards.
Take care all and let me know what you've been up to.

Well done for getting DH along to a craft event :-)

Some lovely looking things, I especially like the cushion.

Looking forward to catching up at Pride & Prejudice day.
