Just like the B word however, the omens are not encouraging. Never before have I hoped so much that the 'experts' aka the met office, have got it wrong, but we'll see. Our strategy is to not worry about our destination, but to rest up and enjoy ourselves when the weather is against us. Accordingly I intend to push on with some sketching and possibly painting. Kath as made for me a lovely sketch book. Here's the book with an alarmingly accurate portrayal of myself on the cover. If you look closely you can see that the picture is entirely in stitch. Kath often has me in stitches.
Inside the book, interspersed among the blank pages, all of nice bits of paper of various sorts are old scraps of this and that which may or may not act as inspiration, or more likely a distraction from my poor sketches. This one's a bit of a tune we like to play.
This next one is a lino cut print by Kath.
It's all a bit daunting really because I don't want to spoil it all with crappy sketches, so I'm going to have to try hard. Wish me luck.
