The photography course book I have started to read is for 20 weeks
but as long as I have completed it by the end of the year I will be happy.
I hope I learn some skills to improve the quality of taking photos indoors as I had
awful trouble trying to photograph my white Steampunk tree and its coloured lights.
I was sad to take down all the Christmas trees and other bits as the lights
were lovely and cheerful and made me forget the grey wintry days outside.
I have been playing my keyboards again - but not this one,
this is the one I started decorating last year which needed more doing to it.
I used a mix of alcohol inks, black and white Posca paint pens and alcohol pens.
I always say I have a bit more confidence sewing after a little drink
but I'm not sure it works with painting ha ha.
First go painting people using that Hazel Soan book I had for Christmas.
And as for learning to sew (its on my list too)...I altered a waistband on my PJs - taking out elastic and machined it up with a cord instead. And for more sewing next, I hope to make one of those 'Travelers style journals' with a fabric cover, which may also come under learning a 'new craft'... My first attempt yesterday with a mini one of those was using craft foam and laminated paper but I don't think its very sturdy.
And finally..because the weather in the UK has been cold and grey and what with the dreadful flu virus going around, it makes me feel that I just want to stay inside and hibernate.
So for exercise - with the aid of some on line videos I have been learning to .. no laughing please!..... 'line dance' .... yes really! ... something called 'the electric slide'.
Hope your new year and any new adventures are going well..
