|future project not yet chosen|
As you know, I've been sketching on a regular basis. On a whim I researched my watercolor paint set to see if they were 'good'. They are student grade but good for me for now. Anyways my story is about how searching for reviews let me to a you tube urban sketch artist who is filled with tons of information.
I have spent lots of time with him and have learned so much about paper and paints. I haven't even scratched the surface of his video uploads.
This discovery has brought me so much happiness!
There are days when I feel I've exhausted the internet and there's nothing left to see. Then I find the perfect rabbit hole to jump into and explore.
I'm still critical of my sketching/painting and overall creativity. I keep squelching those critical thoughts with positive ones. 'Look another page you competed!' 'You showed up and that's half the battle'. etc....

My son asked me what was my favorite age of childhood rearing. I said the one the child was currently in. I loved that children grew up and became independent with each birthday.
So the high school age was better than the middler school age which was better than elementary school age which was better than preschool age which was better than toddlerhood which was better than an infant.
When I went to babysit on Wednesday I did not have a small portable knitting project (gasp!). I hope to fix this predicament and start something tomorrow or over the weekend for that grab and go feature.
The sun graced us with his/her presence and visited for two hours until the clouds arrived. We are heading for some chilly weather once more. I'm okay with that, I'll be knitting and being happy!
I have a fantasy of finishing both sleeves and wearing my new sweater and claiming my short size five needle tips for a hat project that had to be put on hold temporarily.
