My Daisy Painting

my daisy painting

I love yellow daisies, and whilst these are not strictly ‘yellow’ daisies they are still a bright and happy bunch.

This is an acrylic painting that I did a little while ago. I’d done a bit of art at school and not really considered trying my hand at it again for a very long time, until my sons actually began to develop their own interest and skills in creating artworks. This inspired me to get the brushes out and see what rusty talent may be hiding away there. It turns out that the talent is very rusty indeed, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and perhaps with a bit of time and practice I could develop it.

I am privileged to have some very incredible artists as friends and am so grateful for their inspiration and the value they add to the world we live in. Thank you to Alastair Whitton, Philip Barlow and Debby Hart. You remind us that the world is beautiful.

baby head bands

Posted on

These are just a few of the little head bands I made some time ago. The colours are just too cute.

I used a baby yarn which is a wool/cashmere/silk blend and two different sized hooks. The smaller flower is made with a 3mm hook and the larger one a 3.5mm. I used the very simple lion brand pattern found at http://lionbrand.com/patterns/L0134AD.html. I think you might need to register with lion brand to see their patterns.

I simply stitched the flowers onto the band.

Oh dear, I really do need some help with my photos.
