Blossom and Moopie


(Blossom and Moopie)

After a friend discovered this cool book on how to make 'softies' we went shopping yesterday for fabric in second hand shops and local craft shops.  Then we spent today making these cute little guys (sorry but the photo is not very good)  it was nice to be creatively different for a change, but now I am totally exhausted!


(our moopies)


I have been feeling quite tired over the last few weeks, I think it is not doing much, not having the routine of going to work, having no structure to my days.  So I am actually looking forward to getting back to work and getting ready for the students... who start mid February.  I have finished 8 new paintings over the last few weeks so that is not too bad going I guess, will post pics next time.

Great little "softies". Enforced rest is tricky, one is out of ones rhythm, new things have a chance to come in, which normally would never get a look in, I feel this is a good thing, this happens for a reason. Look at all the art work you have created. cheers and "Happy days" Marie

Enjoy your holiday.
