Still no photos, sadly, but at least it is just under the month since my last post.  I always seem to be busy doing something, but most of it just isn't worth posting - even if I could.

I think I am following my usual habit of avoiding actually getting down to work on the project I want to do next.  I need to start drawing hares!  However, I am very nervous of even starting to try.  I have prepared the pages - they are all ready and waiting.  Why am I such a wimp?  Perhaps I am waiting for several kicks in the pants from some of you to make me pull myself together.  Feel free!!

It's very grey and dismal here today after those lovely bright days last week.  Who has stolen our spring?  We want it back please.

I am trying to lose a bit of weight and taking a short walk each day to help things along.  My feet will be very happy when the chiropodist has been later in the week, and walking will be more comfortable.  I have made a good start and stocked up with salad stuff last week when it was so warm.  Maybe I am responsible for the change in the weather.  Sorry.

Oh Heather, I could have written this in its entirety - apart from drawing hares (I only wish I could as they are my favourite animals). I had to call the chiropodist two days early because I was staggering about. Nice to have you back - please do a page in the hare book, I can't wait to see it. I do so love your books.

I think I understand how you are feeling. For me the most difficult part of any project is getting started. It is simply too easy for me to piddle around doing other things instead of just starting my project. Maybe you could just do a practice drawing to get in the mood for what you want to do and then move forward with it from there? Like Weaver I do love to see your drawings! You are a very talented lady and your artwork brings joy to others!

Thank you so much, Pat and Bonnie, for those lovely comments. I think I set myself impossible tasks sometimes - a bit of wishful thinking - but I am struggling away and will show the results when I am satisfied with them.

Your hares will be lovely - hop to it young lady! (See what I did there - I think I'm punny...)

You a wimp Heather? Never!
