Last Faces

 Last faces for the 29 faces challenge, didn't do very well.... good exercise though. I think I should stick with flowers and the odd cat!

 For Illustration Friday challenge, Paint Party Friday & Sunday Sketches. Our Old Kitty was having the best sleep purring in her dreams. At 19 she does a lot of sleeping, purring and telling us what to do!
Here is a picture of the floor we slaved over! Not really wanting to put much furniture in. The floor was all scarred up and much the colour of the window frames. It has a lovely smooth finish now, original fir floors from the 50's. Kitty's favourite spot is on the sheepskin on the sofa.

Together on an adventure

 For the together challenge @ Illustration Friday. I think these three may have more adventures? Not sure if this counts as a face for the 29 faces challenge?

Another group together, the last bits of garden, windflowers a real favourite next year need to add white ones!

Creative Challenges

 For Illustration Friday challenge totem....+ for 29 faces challenge face #4.
A natural object or animal believed by a particular society to have spiritual significance and adopted by it as an emblem.

In my garden the little birds would be my choice of totem animal; they are very busy enjoying the sunflowers that are going to seed. 
 In bloom this week
With a totem visitor!
Which do you prefer?

Faces 29 in September?

 Sketches of faces: stretching artistically....between stretching physically sanding floors. I will post a picture of the finished room prior to cluttering it up! Going to try for the 29 faces in September even though I have started almost 1/2 way through, good exercise.

White Cosmos

Joy to be painting & gardening and a weeks holiday :)

Hidden Within

Hidden within; cabbage moths, if only they did good works instead of laying eggs and hatching into insatiable worms....
Feels great to be painting something other than living room walls, we are almost there, walls painted, floors sanded just the smelly floor finish to go down. The end is in sight :)
