This and that

Another week gone, and my deadline's drawing closer....I have just under 2 weeks to finish off my Captain America carnival costume order (patterns, cutting and packaging for 60 people).  I think they're going to look great all made up and the kids should be super-cute! Sigh....I just want to get it all done now, so I can relax and get ready for my trip to Africa.  

Last night I finished the shawl I've been knitting for my mum for Christmas - I used a lovely chunky cream magician yarn  - it was such a pleasure to knit up and I'm very pleased with the reslts.  (I'll take some pics of Mum in the shawl when I give it to her). 

I also wanted to share Art Trader Magazine with those of you that don't know about it. It's FABULOUS - chock-full of ideas and inspiration!  There are so many great online courses available - I wish  could do them all!  I haven't been working on any ATCs lately, as I simply don't have the time - but when I get back from SA I plan to start working on some larger watercolours. 

Well, it's nearly pumpkin time and it has been a long day.  Got to get up at the crack of dawn tomorrow (Sunday and all) to do some cutting.  I'm off to bed!

Hi Leigh, wow, you are so busy!! Thank you for the link to Art Trader Magazine - I've just got back from their superb website - it's brilliant! I'll spread the word on my blog too.

Have a great day tomorrow!

You are indeed a busy Lady. What a great commission - I hope you will post a shot when they are complete (at least one of them). I have not heard of Art Traders so I'm off to explore. Thanks. There is just toooo much stuff I want to explore. :o) Donna
