So basically I don't think it's for me and it's pointless trying but then I look at these incredible watercolour pieces and I want to master it!
    I totally understand, yes Well I hope you get somewhere with it I often think it means I'm a bad artist but it's not true, and the same for you! Your talents are amazing even if watercolour ends up not being one of them

    I just finished a making a gift for my friend's new born baby- a felt garland for his nursery. I've never made anything like this before, so it took me a while.

    I couldn't resist adding Winnie and Zigzag on one of the letters!

    Those look so wonderful and cute! You did a great job with them! And they're even better with Winnie and Zigzag on the A.

    Lovely work ZigZag! How's the etsy going? I had a look a few days ago and noticed you didn't have a lot listed at the moment.

    I gave up trying to learn watercolours. Flicked through the books and felt entirely bored and uninspired so I returned them. I've still been using the paints, just with no real technique and I end up finishing off with brush pens and fineliners because I don't know what I'm doing

    Recently I've done another sleeping woodland animal



    This french bulldog that I was super chuffed with but nobody has any interest in! Had fun doing it though so I don't mind.


    and these mermaids which haven't had much interest either but at least I've sold one!


    Oh and lastly I bodged together a table.

    I started with this rusty old chair base that's been hanging around my garden:


    I had some black metal paint from another project so painted the base, then made a table top out of some decking offcuts I found at my brother in law's house. A quick stain later and I've got a table that I'm pretty chuffed with! Going to do something similar with the dining table that's rotting away out there too.


    Has anyone else got any projects in the works?

    Wow, that table looks amazing! I also love the squirrel and the little French bulldog, and am glad you sold one of the pretty mermaids.
