Well... guess what I'm doing all day?

ABOVE:  sewing up Bowl Cosy's of course!
I cut out quite a few last night, and heaps of the batting for the inners too.  I'm going to make as many as I can over the next week or so, because they are just so popular!

I will head out later on in the afternoon to get some glue for the painting medium.  I'm going to make a whole new batch of painting medium, so hopefully I get better results.  

Bex is coming over today... she's appointed herself my 'housekeeper' and is going to do some housework for me!  Mostly the things I loathe, like dusting.  
Who HATES dusting the most?
What job do YOU hate the most?

Steve's new job is going well... day 3 for him.  

The OLD MOO had a little mishap with her leg a couple of weeks ago.  It got infected and she ended up in Hospital for a few days.  She's home again now and on the road to recovery.  Such a worry when there is NOTHING I can do from this far away.  There is probably no chance of visiting her until next year now.  

Well... not much else to yak about right now, so I'll bugger off and start me day.  It's gunna be productive.  😃😉


I worked on one of the 'ikky' paintings late yesterday afternoon... and well...tell me what ya think:

ABOVE: From this....

ABOVE:  To this!

I am rather happy with it now, and will add shells once it's dried and been varnished.  I just placed the shells on there today to get an idea of how it might look.

10.48 am:  Feeling a bit spoiled.  My 'housekeeper' arrived bearing...

ABOVE:  Banana cake for our morning tea.  Awwww.

ABOVE:  And there ya go, today's efforts.  I'm about to stop for the day in the Studio, and get my lunch.
After that I might  MIGHT.... do a painting.  It will depend on how I am feeling after lunch.
Might be tired.  Might have a nap. 😂😅😆

OMG... literally every time I come on the blog to update it, the interface has changed!  I know they are 'tweaking' it as they go... I wonder how long it will be before I are finished with the tweaking?

Anyway... that's not what I came on for.  I did another painting this afternoon.... and I will show you tomorrow.  I'm just a bit busy right now getting dinner.. lol!  We be getting fish 'n' chips to go with the sausages I'm cooking.
Shit being a housewife is so hard.  😜😊😖

So... we also have a young person visiting for the next 4.5 days.  Young Z....  is a brat.  But a nice brat.  This young person comes from Cambridge, the child of one of my FBG girlfriends.  So just a nice extra in the house.  We are gunna have fun shopping together on Friday for the Mid Winter Christmas lunch.


  1. Oh Bex... you could have self-appointed yourself my housecleaner.... you'd have free rein to do all the jobs... I'm not a fan of any of them!!!

  2. So sorry to hear about your Mom. Your revised painting is lovely, groovy even! I love the seashells on it too.
    Worst job for me is gathering up all the garbage and putting it out by the street. Hate it!
