On A Grey Day
It is a very grey day here today. The clouds have been getting darker and darker and the rain has never stopped. It is quite appropriate that I should be painting with grey. I walked home in the rain on Thursday and collected these two leaves. The red berries were so bright and glossy in the rain and I couldn't resist picking these little branches off the ground and the empty snail shell came home too.
I have not been drawing as I have another project on the go, been cutting out and sewing a patchwork. I will share that when it is finished. I have also been knitting, some very useful hand warmers to wear as I am working on my sewing. Somehow I always want to sew and knit in the dark evenings, better for my eyes too. I have about four different knitting projects half done, things to wear in the cold winter months.
Hope you enjoyed seeing my drawings and I hope you are all keeping warm, I am sitting next to a cosy fire in the wood burner. It has been dark here all day and my grey photograph was taken at four o'clock and it was so dark outside.
When I wake up to a bright day and the view, I will see it again with new eyes.
Thank you for the lovely comments, it is so nice to find them. I enjoyed reading each one, so thank you.
See you soon. Millyx
