The Taking Stock List

Seeing as I have started doing Pip’s 52 Lists (which I need to do a couple more of this week), I thought I would take her up on the offer of copying and using her list for taking stock. Its a great idea. Ta for all the inspiration Pip!
Here goes:

Making :granny squares in bright colours of my choice. Limiting my colours but enjoying the process.

Drinking :Mainly tea, liptons of course.
Reading:Verses from 1 and 2 Peter mostly.
Wanting:a lot more patience.
Looking:at a lot of art related blogs, links etc…

Deciding:whether my current painting is finished or not.
Wishing:I didn’t have to go to sleep at night, waste of time!
