So after the very inspiring visit to the museum last weekend I decided that my family “needed” to see the Year 12 Art exhibition too. As you can see from this photo, the amount of times I get to plan our day trips and family adventures could be limited. So in my inspired, spontaneous and slightly bossy fashion I planned for us to visit the Melbourne Museum on our way home from Easter family visiting. I also included the lure of a visit to a Lush shop and the possibility of gelato in Lygon St. We spent three hours at the Museum, I saw so many different things to last weeks visit, and it was just great having an outing as a family. ( Happy family = Happy Mumma and vice versa).
I’m feeling inspired to have another try at learning to crochet. So I got out my little bag, and threw the crochet hook and some wool in to take with me to Melbourne( Hugo thought he’d try too). The little bag, I made a couple of years ago using a pattern from the Meet me at Mikes book, and the scarf I do a few rows on each winter ha ha.
I borrowed a fantastic book (Water Paper Paint by Heather Smith Jones) about watercolour from the Library so I’ve got lots of inspiration for painting and this one I did very early this morning. Gotta love your library.
It’s Easter Sunday and it’s Autumn, so autumn leaves, walnuts from our tree, acorns and chocolate bunnies and eggs are about! I used these for my daily sketch.
It’s only my second week of joining in with Pip Lincolne’s One + Four = Life, but I’m really enjoying it.
I hope you leave here feeling inspired to take a photo of your life, get out your paints, visit your library, buy some wool or drag your family to something you want to see! Oh and that you’ll pop back and tell me all about it.
Thanks for reading.
