    Really lovely and things like this are so expensive in the shops.

    Karas work is just amazing quality, I have a tote hare bag made by her that gets heavy wear all the time & I'm confident its gonna last forever

    Jealous of Kara & Zigzags sewing abilities

    Zigzag's work is beautiful.

    I'm going to work on a kind of place mat for the top of our nest of tables.

    That dino scrunchie

    I love the cushions too, you really are talented. I wish I could sew but I can't do anything beyond a basic hand stitch

    Some of my favourite new(ish) bits. I'm trying to focus on art again now we're in another lockdown but not doing so well.
    I've ordered a book on beginners watercolour because I have really no idea what I'm doing and it's hard to settle down to do some art when you might produce something ok or you might produce a pile of turd!

    OMG I couldn't get on with watercolour; I stuck with acrylic because it's kinda forgiving, but mostly because i can use it on anything. I occasionally go back to watercolour but it always disappoints me! I hope you have better luck Battlekat

    That's basically the problem I'm having with watercolour. I always used acrylics growing up and like you say you can kind of do anything anywhere, if you make a mistake you just paint right over it. I'm also really used to working on one area and then moving on to a new one whereas with watercolour it feels like you have to work more in layers and stages with a kind of "big picture" thinking that I am very much lacking! 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!
