.... with my daughter and granddaughter. I am so lucky that we all share an interest in craft. We are all supposed to be on holiday this week, but we couldn't get booked up anywhere - and as it turned out (apart from the rotten weather we have had most of the week) - just as well as my husband's leg decided to "breakout" again, and we spent an hour and a half or so seeing doc etc at the surgery this morning. (long story!)
Anyway I spent a lovely afternoon round at my daughter's house painting. ! The last time we had a 3 generation painting day was on Mother's Day earlier this year, so this was a rare treat, and a nice way to relax - particularly as Dawn hadn't slept well last night worrying about the GCSE results (she is Head of Maths at a local school). As it turned out she had nothing to worry about at the results were excellent. We finished the day off with a great family meal out - and when I say great I mean great in all senses of the word - think we all ate too much at the local Smith & Western!
Here are some photos of our afternoon's playing:
Artists at work - the mess of turquoise in bottom of picture was mine - I was in process of painting backgrounds on some coasters I am painting for Christmas presents.

and finally my painting of a Christmas tree - not quite finished - it needs some snow in the sky and some shadows to "ground" the tree.
Hope you have enjoyed an insight into our "holiday" painting party., and a big Thank You to my daughter and granddaughter for a lovely afternoon.
