Things have been a bit stormy around here, not just the weather but my life, I have had to reassess many things, and I feel that now I am starting to see sunshine and with that, lots of colour.
Colour is what got me through; it makes my heart sing with joy. I haven’t done much art or bloggeds over the last month or so or maybe even longer, events and personal health conspired against me. However, I have managed to do creative things. I have a new obsession - crochet! When I was in hospital last September one of the nurses took pity on my frustration at not being able to do any art (they had put the drippy thingy in my right hand and it was awkward to draw with). She came in with a basket of bright wool and crochet hooks and said would I do grannie squares for the children’s ward. She put some foamy tubing on the needle so I could hold the hook without any problems, Yay! So for that week I crocheted away using the brightest colours ever!
Of course when I got home, I had to dig out my old tapestry wools (I had a tapestry kit making business in a past life) and voila last week I finish my first blanket.
It is more of a throw really. I ran out of wool. So pleased with that I sneaked into the local wool shop and have started to collect the different colours of my boudoir. Thus I have now started on a new project – a large blanket but a stripy one with all sorts of crochet stitches.
Back to art, I have been looking at work I did earlier in the year and the ones that made me feel good were the colourful ones I did in July and August such as Tweety Bird below.
My heart sang, so colour here I come!
At long last my head is buzzing with joy!
Here is a photo of a climbing rose that I have along the drive way, it also makes my heart sing.
Today I am linking up with Eva and Kristin at Paint PartyFriday, thanks for visiting and have a blessed week.
