Latest art and crafts projects

As you may know if you have previously visited my blog, I love painting and doing anything crafty when I have some free time. I have added some images to show what I have most recently been working on. 

Firstly, the image above is a painting that I have recently done of a butterfly. I interpreted this from a photograph that I had taken a few years age when I was at the Butterfly and Wildlife Park, which is in my hometown of Long Sutton, Lincolnshire. I finding painting is a great way to sit down and relax, and I find it can really de-stress myself. I hadn't painted for a few years before completing that piece, so may need to keep practicing in order to improve my techniques, but overall, I was quite happy with the final result. The print can be found by visiting the following link to my Etsy store:

The images above show my crochet work. At the moment I am working on two different cushion covers. I am making one for myself, which is to go alongside the pink and red cushion cover that I have recently photographed on my blog post, found here. This is going to be consisted of 16 grant squares, rather than one big square. The other cushion cover is the blue one pictured in working progress above. I would like this to be quite a small scatter cushion with dark blue ribbon ties, and I haven't yet decided whether to add this to my Etsy store yet, or whether to keep it for myself!
