As you might have noticed, I am sorry to say the sewing has been taking a bit of a back seat this year. I have been attempting to learn how to paint. I have spent a lot of time working on a portrait of a friend. Whilst this painting will never grace the walls of any gallery, it is my first attempt at a portrait and I feel quite proud of the fact that I have finally had the courage….(push) I needed to actually attempt something as complicated as a portrait.Image
