Hello and Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had calm holidays, spent on your own or with a few family members or friends. Here it was very calm and with less stress than the years before, caused by lots of travelling to visit family and friends.
Sooooo, what did I do to spend my time? I took up watercolor painting again, watched some videos, but still was afraid to ruin too much of the watercolor paper and waste a lot of paint. DH told me again to go on and paint away. And that's what I did starting with a series of garden birds in a small format. You might know some of them like the robin or the nuthatch, as I think I shared some of them with you in December. So here are all of them together. These are the ones I paiinted so far.
Besides knitting and crocheting gifts I also found the time to participate in an Advent-CAL-endar. CAL stands for crochet-a-long, where people work on a pattern together and share their progress on social media. From December 1st to 24th we crocheted some rows on this beautiful shawl every day. Love how this one came out!
