Almost didn’t have anything to post for PPF this week. My legs got entangled with a ladder when hanging up some curtains and I have messed them up a bit (especially the knees) and as a result have to park myself in a chair with my legs up or hobble around on two crutches. I ditched the painkillers as they were making me rather groggy and now I can think!
The braces I have to wear mean that I cant bend my knees and sitting at a table is awkward. So it is in the recliner I languish my days away. Not all is lost as I have been doing some crochet, A crochet along that I had my eye on by a South African, Vanessa Smith of Hooked on Sunshine blog but didn’t think I had the time for. So I downloaded the pattern and have beavering away. As per usual I have completely moved away from the colours suggested and the order of the colours. It is like painting with cotton. Strangely enough the cotton brand I am using is called Paintbox!
I have been trying out a trial of Painter 5 Essentials and the trial ends at the weekend, I like it but wondered what the full blown Painter 2018 was like and decided to download the a trial for that. That was 3 o’clock this afternoon, a burnt dinner, many cold teas later I have this to show you.
I love it! I think I will definitely get it as it does so much more, especially with texture and thick paint brushes. It will even be better when I get a Waicom tablet to draw and paint with. I did this with a mouse, somewhat awkward to say the least.
Have you noticed that my colours are similar to the afghan I am making! Do you tend to stick to a certain colour palette? I must try and extend myself and push the envelop a bit.
Here’s something to make you smile whether you are a crocheter or painter.
Have a lovely week and thank you for visiting.
