Sunday walk took us to Montjuic. To the bullring that has been turned into a shopping centre, up to MNAC and then down towards Caixa Forum. Cold but bright!

The image on the far right reminded me of an exhibition I saw in New York about 10 years ago. Will dig out the photos. These are shadows in a bin!   

These were made from empty crisp packets and a hole puncher. The image has always stuck with me. Looking at packaging in a totally different way!

Some sketches of money plants - the painting will follow. Light is not very good or taking photos today.

Here's the painting although it's not the best photo...
I think my camera's starting to give up the ghost!

Hello here are some pics from our Sunday outing.

P.S. Curtain is coming on a treat and just off to start baking chocolate cake for a spot of tea and cake with the girls tomorrow. I love the weekends.

It's Valentines Day so I've made some cakes with sprinkles for when my lovely loves get home from work/school!

Did you spot the new tablecloth? Can I just say that the fabric shop is my new favourite place...and what about the heart coaster? I got it for xmas.

Here's my first assignment from the 2 week course I started in January. I'm finding this year speeding by and I've only just had Christmas! So here is the collage of photos from a walk in the neighbourhood.

some good geometric lines punctuated with a bit of blue!

SO the sewing machine has been dusted off and the first project since the carrot bag (many years ago) has been completed! I need to get a photo of the finished article... here are a couple from the process.

I really enjoyed the challenge and what makes it even more special is that it looked good in fact it was just as I had hoped it would be. I've realised it's better just to get on with a project than thinking about it too much. Thinking stops the making.

Here's the finished article!
