Before breakfast

I can get quite a lot done before breakfast when I put my mind to it. This is the time when I feel most creative and most productive. Often I am beavering away at something completely oblivious of the time, then I get a rumbling reminder from the stomach department, hey, are we going to have some food today. 
There are still a lot of gaps to fill in the black flower garden. The main parts are placed where I think they should go, now I need leaves, petals, and stalks, to bind it all together. Flowers don't just float in the air, they are attached to something. 
I'll add these to the mix, all placed on loosely before sticking down, maybe I'll need some more. Thank you to Iceland for sending the super large advertising leaflets in the post. They make good work mats to keep the table cloth clean. 
Looks like a stormy day ahead, so I'll have to pick my moments when I go for a walk and hopefully  dodge the showers.

Thanks for the yoootooob suggestions yesterday, I'll look them up.

  1. Windy,rainy,hailing,sunny day here Ilona with the promise of thunderstorms later on...I suppose that gives me something to look forward too,lol.Your work is coming on well.Are they real leaves that you have sprayed black?.I picked some massive leaves up a few Christmases ago and sprayed them silver n gold, and put the in the Christmas garlands that are put out each year.They looked lovely,but crumbled when I took it down after about 4 weeks.The leaflets do come in useful!I love it every month when my neighbour gives me his old newspapers,they are used for lots of things,including lining my cat litter trays!,Stay safe and I hope that you manage to get your walk in before the thunder comes.xxx

    1. I was given a lot of artificial flowers and leaves, I took some apart for this project. I painted them.

  3. having read through your past posts, i can see you are feeling a bit like I am - I think lockdown has created a lot of pent up anger and I know that the security person at the local supermarket has told me they are getting a lot more hassle and cashiers are sometimes left in tears. No need for it. BTW I am liking the black stuff you are working on

    1. Brenda, I am sick of the word lockdown. It is needed to try and control the virus, but now people realise that it can bring a whole lot of new life changing problems.
