I thought I'd share some of my recent makes with you to inject a little colour into this grey, damp Autumnal Wednesday.
There has been some inking, painting and stitching going on in these parts...and a lot of it with a very specific seasonal theme!
My mum has been recovering from a hip replacement, and has also been feeling the effects of her illness - so October was given over to visiting her in hospital, and having her stay with us for three weeks. Not a lot of time was free for Ditsying, but we've had some fab quality time with Mum! She's now having some excellent care and rehabilitation at our local Sue Ryder hospice, so I've been lucky enough to be able to spend the past two days painting...just for the fun of it. Oh what a much needed joy that has been!!! I'm feeling much less twitchy and twisty (I needed my fix) and something I wanted to try is working out just dandy.
Eventually, Mum will come back here again to stay, until she is fully fit to go back home, so I'm cramming as much creative time as I can, into my days...though the late nights are already taking their toll zzzzzz ;)
This is just a quick little post, before I head back into My Room and get messy again, but I hope to be back soon.
