New Year New Look

Hello all. A quick post to wish everyone a Happy New Year. I’ve been very remiss over the last few months, but we have big changes imminent here in the Feathers household – more news later this month I hope.

I am going to revamp the blog and the site to focus on my art as although I still love knitting and indeed have a sweather almost ready for testing I am going to add some of my paintings to my Etsy shop for purchase as prints. This is going to take quite a while – not least because I need to take some ‘proper’ better quality photos that those on my phone. So I’m going to make a start this week and hopefully have some further news by the end of the month.

I was pleased to end last year with a daily total of 12,789 steps a day, which I think is pretty good. Will I give myself a target of getting to 13,000 next year? Probably not – though I’ll see how it’s all going by the Spring.

In the meantime, this was a Christmas Present for one of my daughters. She asked for a ‘Tree of Life’. In the process of doing this, I discovered that I really can’t paint trees! You can see what I mean regarding a ‘proper’ photo on here I think – it’s not straight, the colours are really right and it’s not square either.

  1. Happy New Year to you too, Lisa! I think your tree’s great! (Now you’re starting to give me a bit of a complex with your self-criticism, as I am beginning to view my paintings with the same severity!).
    I am looking forward to seeing more of your art work on Etsy, do give us some prompts though when you hang them there. Best of luck on that. Don’t forget, you can now add a video to your description and photos, so that’s an interesting (and rather comical) feature to use.
    Look forward to reading your next blog! Take care and bye for now! (Well done on your steps — and that’s also given me a second inferiority complex, ha ha!)
