It's been a busy couple of days with a two day visit from my Mum, and it was an opportunity for the entire family to spend time with her…..
Dinner Wednesday night was like a comedy movie, kids playing excitedly with the their favorite toys (the stuffed rats I have in their toy box.)
Plastic swords for would be knights and roaring dinosaurs with mouths full of teeth for 5 year old boys….
2 adult Uncles (single I might add) who enjoy encouraging loud high spirited games and disturbing the conversation…. then hand the kids back to their eye rolling parents.
6 month old Baby Savannah joined in with her own form of noise….
The conversation of 15 people enjoying themselves…. 3 dogs, 2 cats and a builder in his shorts and dirt covered boots…..!!!! such is one of our "do's"
The food was appreciated, and I was reminded of when we were a family of 17, all sitting around the table - gees how did we do it.!!!!
Did you know you need 40/45 potatoes to roast for that amount of people….!!!
I have been working, on the portrait and should have something to share tomorrow…
The alphabet is growing but I can't share it until the book is out….simply because I was made aware that the pattern was being used by someone…
I also found a new source of very fine pigment ink pens…. I'm excited…..!!! as you can see, this illustration looks as if it's on paper, but it is indeed on fabric….
I also work on a special project from 5.00 am to 7.00 am each morning…it looks fabulous, but I can't share that either !!!!!
