Today’s Table

Today’s table has more painting.

But may have been interrupted by the first snow of 2013. This is our backyard!

Everything looks so clean and white!

Unlike the (laughable) blizzard back at the beginning of December, that snow began falling last night and hasn’t really let up since! It’s gotten lighter, and heavier at times, but I may actually get a decent covering and finally be able to make my snow minions ala Calvin!

If only Himself weren’t too unwell with the office lurgy to assist me! So I left him to his lurgy while I went off to tour the canals! Aren’t they stunning?

And this.

The locals seemed to notice not a jot!

I found a picture once on Pinterest of this being done, and promised myself that the next time there was enough snow, I’d put “Cars” eyes on a car.

Close enough!

PS – My new snow boots and 18 year old ski jacket are the awesomest things I currently own, besides my camera 😉

Today’s Table

I thought I’d show you some of the things I’ve been working on. I also thought that if I made myself show you what I’m working on each week, it is the incentive I need to have something finished to show you! This will also help me make smaller projects that finish faster to help me not get bogged down in projects like the never ending shawl which I have now been working on for over a year! Sometimes the unending projects can be soul draining. Instant gratification can really help (in small doses)!

With that in mind, I’ve been working on some watercolour illustrations which I’m hoping to have up on Ghoti Industries and Etsy for sale shortly. I’m really digging flamingos at the moment. Had you guessed?

There’s also this pair of mittens which I began just before Christmas to have something small to work on that was easily transportable to knit night. Of course, I haven’t had the time of energy to go to knit night since beginning them, but that’s okay. I’ll get there next week.

Sorry that picture’s so dark. I ran out of sunlight when I put lunch on for a friend!

So what are you all working on? What are you up to with yourselves?
