Time For Me


The time we take for ourselves, gives us something in return.
Ernst Ferstl

Copy Cat

The new lesson in the painting e-course A Year of Painting by Alena Hennessy is titled "Making it your own". Find some art that speaks to you and paint your own version of it.
I chose Dante Gabriel Rossetti's Venus Verticordia.


And another painting by Tamara de Lempicka that I saw this April at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

Up-in-the-Air-Pants

You wouldn't believe from the heat that is outside now, but Tuesday was actually a very rainy day. All-day-rain. Cats and dogs. Buckets. Full of rain. No chance of going outside. To pass the time Carolina and I played "sewing". Cutting fabric, carefully handling needles, organizing thread and even a bit of real sewing (from my side). My sewing machine saw its last activity in back in January (!), yeah, it's been half a year without sewing ...


Here comes a pair of comfy jersey pants, 
the pattern is Moira by Mamu Design.

Only after I had cut the fabric I saw this:


So now the washing instructions and fabric's name are part of one side of the pants,
looks nearly like intended.

The pants are seriously intended for yoga and play time:

 












Yeah, yeah, feeling the sewing groove again ...

Beginning of the Blues

No, I am not sad. Quite the opposite. I am actually very happy, because the blueberry self-picking season has started this week. We have discovered a blueberry farm last year and this year the blueberries have grown even bigger there (as have the girls).


 Hello fresh blueberries galore, smoothies and muffins!
