I finished my mug! It’s probably a bit overworked, but I am pretty much satisfied. After all, it’s only a mug.
I am pretty happy with the coneflower and butterfly, too. Although the lighting in the photos is all hinky; I like the originals better.
And then I tried to play with my Christmas gift from my younger son. I soon realized I have no idea how to use watercolor pencils. Looks like a visit to YouTube is in order.
Next I’ll start the beef tips simmering, and Teddy asked if we could make a pumpkin roll. Maybe just pumpkin bread with cream cheese frosting. MUCH easier!
