NOT THE TURNER PRIZE
Thank you for the lovely comments you have made about my paintings. They do look much better on the small screen of a computer and I'm happier with them that way myself! I'm not always happy with my attempts though...
Liz at Love those cupcakes wonders if my knitted bags sag. Yes they do. If I use tight stitching they aren't bad. I'm doing one at the moment with double knitting cotton and 3mm needles. These needles are very small for the yarn so the fabric is tight. The string bags will stretch much more. How much? I'm not sure. At the moment they are purely decorative.
After the sanding, re-plastering, shelf making and painting we had a day out. The Geat Gatsby in 3-D at the flicks. Just us two and another lady had the cinema to ourselves. Never much of a story it became a splendid show in 3-D with Gatsby's parties making a grand concert of their own. I don't think it would be much without the 3-D.
Cheers for now
