this week I've been enjoying doing a little bit of sketching rather than stitching (sorry Paula). I am having fun with aceos mainly because it is like making tiny fairy pictures (they are only 3.5" x 2.5").
it's a lovely thing to do in the evenings and at the moment the evenings are all I've had for working. For some reason our summer so far has been very busy and mostly with the educational stuff we usually leave behind us at this time of year. Teague is studying for English and French IGCSEs and his piano grade 3 (the first one he's done) and needs some help.
Then there's the cycling which has had us driving around the county (ironically) to get him to time trials and races.
And we need to get out and enjoy the beach as we're not sure how long summer will last
so a little bit of day/evening dreaming and fairy/pixie sketching has been beautifully relaxing in the evenings
I have also (due to a rather nice birthday present) got myself onto instagram as lilipoposketches. I have a little button shaped like a camera at the top of my blog on the right which should take you to my page. I'm really not sure what I can do there yet as I've only just set it up but please leave me your instagram names and I will visit your pages (once I work out how to do it!).
and there are a few fairies left in my folksy shop at the moment although I think I will be making more along with some custom cards I have been asked to make.
I may be a little absent next week as we have visitors almost on their way and chaos will definitely ensue. But the very best kind of sister/nieces/cousins chaos, hopefully with a little bit of sunshine too.
