Making Progress......

For the first time in weeks I have had a weekend with free afternoons in which to paint undisturbed - how I have missed that!  So the snow leopard has progressed quite a bit, although still an incredible amount of work left to do.  I am working with a size 2 brush so it is painstakingly slow and will probably damage my eyesight even more, but oh how I am enjoying it.  Will I finish it in time to enter into the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year competition before the end of January?  Anybody's guess at the moment!

In the evenings I knit  - at the moment I am attempting the mini-sofa from my Mochimochi book that I was given for Christmas and sorely regretting it.  Who knew this pattern involved making a sofa that was anatomically correct?  Add to that the two colour pattern and you have a whole lot of work....but I just keep thinking how cute it will look with a knit dog or cat stretched out on it.

LOL Trust you to try and knit a sofa. Are you going to do a 'to scale version' of it too?

Love the snow leopard. Fingers crossed it'll be ready for the exhibition. xoxo

Wow that is fantastic! I love the way your showing it to us as you go, makes me realise how much work goes into it!

The snow leopard is going to be magnificent! I like the idea of a dog on a sofa :-)
