Peace at Last....

After the most manic few weeks I think I have ever had, things have finally quietened down for Christmas. The 24 (TWENTY-FOUR...I can't believe it) calendar pictures were finished within the deadline, which was brought forward by ten days, and have been sent off. I have never worked so hard on painting in my life, with most evenings taken up with it until 11 p.m. Combine that with the day job and trying to get ready for Christmas, as well as having a stinking cold at one point, it's been a blur!
But I'm back to quietly painting the potatoes, which are in fact very therapeutic after such madness. I have two weeks at home for the school holidays and three potato pictures and a pet portrait to do....sounds manageable!

Not much crafting been going on - when? But I'm looking forward to getting back to that too. And I think my family are very glad that scary wild-eyed, paint-stained lady seems to have left the building......

I never realised how glamorous potatoes could look like until I saw your pictures of them. They look great.

I am so pleased for you that the 'great rush' is over and the calendar pictures are all painted and posted.

Hope you have a lovely and restful Christmas.
