Look What I Found!

While tootling back to my car after nipping to the town today, I glanced in the window of a charity shop and saw something I just had to have! Isn't it cute - a wooden nativity candle-powered roundabouty thing! It cost me the princely sum of £6 and worth every penny. We had great fun watching the propeller spinning round and making the little painted shepherds, kings and angels circle the baby Jesus. Not too sure where we'll keep it after Christmas though......

Really notched it up a few gears with the calendar illustrations - attempting to paint one per day this week to finish by next Monday, then I can relax for the first time in months. I'll be drawing kittens in my sleep soon!
