Today really is a day for staying indoors – if at all possible.  I went down to the coast this morning and the wind was bitingly cold.  It may not feel it, but we are lucky down here in Cornwall as we are still above freezing unlike other parts of the UK who are under feet of snow too!

I’m all nice and snug now in my studio and just settling in to do some more to a portrait watched over by these two little guys!  This was a painting I did of my mothers teddy and her cousins teddy all cosy and warm on a quilt I made with my granddaughter.  Loads of happy times all wrapped up in one painting.  Do you have a picture like that, that gives you an instant family hug?

I will show the picture of the portrait when it’s done.
