Mermaids and blue ground


found some pics of my mermaid, need to finish off the wicked red one that I have got rather stalled on.

Been scrubbing the kitchen and will be painting it, within days possibly(!) in the delicious 'blue ground' by farrow and ball that the lovely http://dancesforpies.blogspot.com/ has given me, bless her with angelic baby resting help.

Had to return my chilli painting back its rightful owner today (see May 20th 2009 post for pic), sad, thinking that I really need to motivate myself to do another one, can I do it again? It was done in extreme conditions that I'm really not sure I can replicate. I am a spasmodic and chancy painter at best, maybe with practice it might get more consistent.

tara for now

Hello my dear,
Sorry you couldn't make it last night, I for one would have been quite happy to knit in the castle, change of scenery and whatnot! I'm quite pleased with the flower myself, although I've bought some larger self cover buttons which I think may be better with such a big flower...that'll be the next attempt!
Mermaid is very pretty, the red sounds good too though. Hope the painting goes well.
I'm off to dip my hands in cream now, two days of almost continuous hammering has taken it's toll, as well as an unfortunate snip pinch incident that I should know well enough to avoid by now...See you soon xx
