Ai sorry to hear your little one is struggling with teetheing. At least it is a healthy thing and will pass, even though it is frustrating.
Joan T wow you are enjoying this hunt it seems

. Chrismas carols are indeed musical - you can only count it if you were singing along !
ovely painting though. how do you manage to paint with watercolours whilst standing in a busy tree garden centre - don't people give you funny looks? do you do it standign or do yoou like get a chair out of the car and sit down. don't busy people walk past you wondering why you are sitting there? Are you in the way lol? you are brave!
Boatsie - WELLCOME
great to have yuo along and it is an honour that my list should be your first - (and then I'm not here to be a good host for you
) cute angel - great item choices and your drawings are really good with great form and shading! love the Christmas bauble too. maybe you should keep the envelope and throw away the bill!
Bear star - I like the chiaroscuro effect on the seashell with the reflection challenge. really works well. I think you are the first to try this challenge so go you!
I hope it does become addictive for you Stephanie - it has for many of us. I'm just gutted I can't draw on my own list - I've been really looking forward to it too!
Vivienne - aw poor rejected or dejected Kiwi. Nice work on the vase and seashell. It is always hard to get good shots when working in subtle values but your cat ornament and book look good from what i can see. big AWWWWWW for Drum... he's lovely. look at that little tail sticking up - and he so doesnt care does he.
sorry I missed saying Happy birthday Joan.
Boatsie - cool peppermil but that Jay feather was a nice find and lovely rendered. Glad you did the mask - not many have but the word 'mask' can be interpreted in so many ways. It is lovely.
jacquip - healthy quick snack choice
Ah deosn't have to be a real flower - I was oging to use a silk one. We have a daffoldil for a cancer charity here too. such lovely renderings of all the items.
Thank you all so much for joinin in the fun still a couple of days to join in,,,, maybe I should try left handed but then I'd have to get Dave to run around grabbing everything for me.
