Things are moving on I've been busy working on samples for my City and Guilds course, no images at the moment maybe next time. I've also been working on my pieces for the 'Seeking Artemis' Exhibition, when Chris invited me to join her and the other female artists in this exhibition I was flattered and excited. Since then I have fluctuated between that feeling of excitement and blind panic....... after our meeting on Saturday I'm in the state of excitement. How I'll feel as May fast approaches I don't know! Does everyone doubt their own abilities is it normal? Anyway I have been busy today posting images on the Seeking Artemis blog pop over and take a look at a small sample of work that will be in the exhibition, there are six artist of varying experiences in exhibiting from the very experienced to a first time exhibitor. We are all supporting and encouraging each other in the true spirit of Artemis. We also have a Facebook page take a look and please press the 'like' button at the top of the page (a bit of pushy promotion there).
Home baking is very much in vogue I've been baking bread and since the New Year no shop bought bread has been consumed in this house, home baked bread is so much tastier plus you know whats in it an added bonus the house smells lovely. I seem to have the cob loaf down to a fine art, the recipes are from Baking Made Easy Paul Hollywood.
I wasn't at all happy with my attempt at sour dough, I've given up on that one! Tomorrow I'm making a wholemeal loaf, hopefully before lunch. Does anyone out there make their own sour dough? I'd love to know how they get on with it, mine was so well I cannot even put it into words........
I do seem to have the cooking bug at the moment on Saturday I made a lovely creamy chicken curry with stir fried spring onions, washed down with a pint of Crabbies, not good for the waist line but never mind. This recipe was from Anjum Anand's book Indian Food Made Easy, both of the books were Christmas presents, I cant say that someone was trying to tell me something, because I bought them myself with book vouchers!
There have been two pilates classes, after the first class my back ached, not a surprise and after the latest session it doesn't feel quite so bad. There are only four of us in the group and we all have lower back problems so the class is very gentle (apparently) . Hopefully by the end of the six sessions I'll actually feel the benefit.
