Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.
For Art Journal Journey, Favourite poem or quote, I made a page with a quote supposed to be from Shakespeare, although it doesn't seem to appear anywhere in exactly this form, and is probably a misquote from his play, 'Julius Caesar'. But I still like it! 'It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves'. For my page I used a painted and stenciled background which has been ready for some time. I drew the stars and planets and 'my' head with white pen and coloured some with gold and red metallic pens.
Recently I did a private challenge with Chrissie, where we challenged each other to make something spring-like using our newly acquired sewing machines. I sent mine to her, and as it has already arrived there safely, I can show you the sewing bag I made for her. It is reversible, with 2 different sides, and has appliques on the front and the back. I did a lot of unpicking as well as sewing, and there is room for improvement, but I finished it, and am proud of that!
Lilly and Lucky are enjoying their lives, as always.
This bullfinch often sits in the tree in front of my balcony, seems to be shy, and always tries to hide behind twigs when he sees me:
And here he is in all his glory:
Have a great weekend, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
