weekend projects...

I painted Spanish bears in mountainous settings...and started xmas gifts for friends and relatives in the UK...
and finished a "Thank You" cat for our wonderful helper who's always there at our Mamas and Chicks Show...thank you L!
oh yes, we went to "Saltan's Tent" for my hubby's Birthday dinner with friends...and rolled out...I'm definitely not used to eating as much in the evening. It was delicious...but thought it could have been a touch hotter(in the Spice department).
The belly dancers were awesome...I want to be able to do that one day...they had these sheer red shawls which they would incorporate into their dancing...reminding me of a warm breeze
swirling through the restaurant. Loved the music too.

This week I'm starting 2 3ft x 3ft portraits. I know, I'm really excited too!

What are you up to this week?

P.S.Tomorrow will be the come back and enter for your chance to win an original watercolour!

Amazing designs and I love the cat. I always wondered what it would be like to snuggle down.

Have a lovely day,

Really? You did that all by yourself and over the weekend?!

I feel sheepish now as I try to do some of the simplest things;-)

A child (hey, me!) would be so lucky to have an illustrated book with those designs.
