More painting. Need to touch up the white and redo one wall because the paint is peeling off. Who ever lived here before and put gloss on the walls, we hate at the moment. Its odd because the paint is sticking to most of the wall, even on some places that has gloss, but near the ceiling the paint is peeling right off the gloss that is left. Even with sanding it to leave something for the new paint to stick to its coming off. So now Mr.F has to take a heat gun to it and re-paint part of the wall. Glad we got more paint then we thought we needed.

Going to make a skirt out of an old pair of jeans that have a hole that would just look really odd if fixed. Just need to figure out what fabric to use. I love the really colourful fabric, but it is really busy, while the blue fabric is really a lot more relaxing looking. Any ideas of which to use?

And working on my graphite horse :) The line art transferred and just waiting for me to put the basic shading down. I always forget how much I like using other forms of media other then coloured pencils. I go through phases where I use one form for a few weeks and then get bored with that and switch to something else. But I always go back to coloured pencils. I seem to prefer them compared to most other forms of art, ok maybe using ink would be a pretty close runner up to CPs, but then I have to deal with getting ink over everything. hmm wonder how I could combine the 2....

Urrgghh .... painting! It makes me break out in a cold sweat just thinking about it. Good luck - I hope that awful gloss behaves itself and you can get the new coat to stick.

I vote for the blue fabric for your skirt!

Wow, you've got lots of projects going on! I am interested to see the shirt when it's done, I am sure it will look awesome!

Definitely you should try combining the ink and CPs - I love the combination!

Are you making a skirt out of the printed fabric or a shirt. Well I would vote for the Blue one whichever it is.
