We picked the last of the grapes yesterday - more jelly to be made today. The birds are welcome to the remainder, but I do wish they wouldn't make such a purple mess on our patio!

I am now experimenting using my new Derwent Graphiks paint pens and some Yupo paper - both new to me and both very different to what I am used to. I think with a bit of practise they are going to become quite a favourite.
This week saw the completion of the last item for the animated film. The last and the most problematic! However, it is all done now and very soon I will be able to share it - I have seen the trailer and it looks great! Not long to go now, just little longer...

I wish I had more time for painting at the moment - our grape vine this year has produced yet another mammoth crop and I am trying to utilise it. I'm making grape jelly as usual - we like it, plus it is good for spur of the moment gifts as everyone else likes it too. So far there are 11 jars of the stuff, a bucket of grapes in the kitchen awaiting processing and about another 20lbs of grapes out on the vine. I have a feeling most of them will end up compost - life is too short to stand over a boiling pan of juice & sugar!

I am currently crocheting another monster, quite difficult when using fluffy yarn, I can't see what on earth I'm doing!

Time to start adding stock to my Etsy shop - there is a pull-apart zombie on the needles, and a painting on the board.
The animation is just about finished and will soon be out there - watch this space, it's all very exciting!

I have been crafting since I got back - more on that in another post.

I have lots of photographs to keep me busy painting sun and sand over the winter months - if I can get through today that is!
