A bit of a catch up

drawing, hiking, origami, walking

As I’ve been away for a few days and with internet and mobile phone signal a bit hit and miss I haven’t been able to post every day. But this does not mean I’ve not been active. Obviously I wasn’t able to take all my craft stuff so I took the opportunity of peace and quiet to do a bit of drawing and catch up on a bit of reading. I drew a “speedy snail” and book worm from my sons how to draw book. I also drew an oak tree and country cottages from my own beginners drawing book. I’m not overly chuffed with the houses but as this was my first attempts at houses and perspective I suppose I can’t complain.

I also ambushed the hubsters origami set and decided to give that a bash – it was a lot harder than I remember from my school days. I made a walking crab, pig finger puppet and a fox puppet – none of which look like said creatures!!! But they look exactly like in the book.

Lastly the book I have started reading is The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo – I seriously wish I hadn’t bothered but I can’t bring myself to not finish a book I start. I’m 100 pages in (6 chapters) and the story still hasn’t got going. still reading back stories. I am hoping it picks up as the blurb on the back sounds really promising.

Oh and not to mention the glorious dog walking in the beautiful Northumbrian countryside – after 10 years of visiting the same hill farm we never tire of the views.
