There are some amazing artists around.

Goodafternoon everybody!

This morning I could sleep a bit longer, oh, it's a wonderful feeling after long times of not sleeping all too well, or just in kind of shifts LOL.
Then i watched a recorded episode of The Greatest Dancer from the BBC.

This link explains what is all about and how it works and you can also see some performances, if you like.
I love Strictly come dancing even more, but this also is a fantastic program and you are able to see some pretty talented people!

Then I took a nice shower and then prepared a bit of our dinner, I put on the washing machine and even did a little bit of ironing. After that I went out in the garden to leave some food for the birds and then I thought it was time to take it a while easy and so here I am!

The weather here has changed somewhat, it has become colder, at night we have (at the coast )around 3-5C frost and at daytime just 2-3C in the plus. Yeah, we aren;t used to it anymore. But the good thing is that it is dry and we have some sunshine. may be one day later in the week there might be some snow, but they aren;t sure of it.
Well, the snow can stay away for me!

I managed to do one necessary phonecall concerning our state pension. I forsaw that it would take a long time, mostly waiting on the phone, but i was ever so lucky. I was through in one ot two minutes and the person helping me was ever so nice and all was settled in a few minutes. Sometimes we still can be lucky, hoorray!

I am receiving in the post already every now and then papers I need for the taxes, I have a folder where I put them all in so I cannot forget one. Still I think I must make a phonecall to one bank to ask if they can send me the annual statement for the taxes.  have one bak that does it automatically, but the other might think we can go on line and print it out for ourselves. Of course that is a possibility. But as I have no working printer at the moment and a very lazy laptop, I want to ask me to sent it to me on paper. Shouldn;t be such a difficult thing for them, hey? Some however aren;t too willing to do so. We'll see how it goes.

Somewhere this week in a program I cannot remember anymore, I saw some amazing work of an artist, who is making, among other things, portraits with tulle fabric. I was in awe! I have two links for you where you can see for yourself what amazing work this guy is making.
His name is Benjamin Shine, a London artist. Never had heard of him before, but it really love the work he makes and it is so difficult!
Take a look for yourself:

All this week I tried to take some time for me to do some designing.  managed to make a new kit and started on a new one. It is going not really quick, but at least I am back into designing a bit.
I also like to do some games when at the computer, simple ones like a card game or a mahjong. It is so relaxing! Then sometimes do some blogreading, and an hour has gone in a flash!

Talking about going in a flash, I should finish this post now, the laundry is waiting for me, and after that I would like to relax some more, okay??
I have a new kit for you, Floating on Dreams. Hope you like it.
Wishing you a marvellous week and stay safe!

Oh my, I loved that cloth art. I can't image how he does it but it is definitely beautiful. Thank you for the new kit. I love the birds.

The weather here is not so nice. It snowed several inches, then the rain came. It is raining all day today, then it will be ice tonight and all day and night tomorrow. Brrrrr!

But, Spring will be here soon. Pogo and I can't wait to start spending lots of time outdoors on the porch. I do miss listening to the birds.

It's good that you are designing more again. Creativity helps to keep our minds and bodies young. Now I think I'm going to have me a little nap. Pogo has already been asleep for about an hour. You have a wonderful week my friend. Hugs, Edna B.
