Flowers (and a mushroom)

Hello poppets! I’m still in the land down under i.e. Australia, but at least sitting in air con today.



Here’s the last of the pictures of the painting I’d been working on (a field of flowers for my aunty in Taiwan) – framed and everything, woot! If you look closely there is a lulzy mushroom in there somewhere as a bonus.

Get up and go

Duckieees! It’s nearly GO TIME here for us – we’re soon off to Taiwan to see ye olde Moshi family, huzzah! It’s going to be a long-ass trip so I bought 4 e-books for my kindle. Yes Please, Words That Matter, Someone Like You and Henry Sugar (I love Roald Dahl short stories). I am so ready. I am going to Eat All The Things in Taiwan.

The past couple nights we’ve watched the extended edition of the first Lord of the Rings (Fellowship of the Ring) and now I’m all hankering to see the rest – The Two Towers and Return of the King. I was a humongous fangirl for LotR back in my teenage days. SUCH GOOD TIMES. Billy Boyd, Viggo Mortensen, Sean Bean (“seen been” haha). And watching it made me get this in my head

They’re taking the hobbits to Isengard! ga ga ga ga gard

An update on the painting for my aunty, for those of you playing at home… The painting is FINISHED, below are the final in-progress photos. I will post pictures of the finished painting when we get to Taiwan. I hope it can be framed and everything in time, if so I can post a picture of it framed and hanging properly on the wall and everything. Woot!

Christmas is coming …

Hello poppets! I’ve been le busy lately trying to get everything done before Christmas. As ChivChiv said it’s nearly going-home time – exciting!! Mr Moshi and I are off to Taiwan in a couple weeks and then Australia after that. It will be the first time all my relatives in Taiwan get to meet Mr Moshi for real and ooh and ahh over how tall and Swedish and beardy he is.

One of my aunts in Taiwan has requested for a painting of a field of flowers to replace a fugly line drawing of a nude woman in her apartment so that is what I have been attempting … It’s coming along but isn’t done yet, so please don’t tell me it’s ugly *__* … I just hope I can get it done by Christmas

You can see it is not stretched properly on any kind of wooden frame because of the weird dimension my aunty’s existing picture frame is. So I bought a piece of fabric and secured it as well as I can … believe me it caused a lot of headaching. I hope the finished result will not suck otherwise it’s allllllll for nothinggggggggggg. Blurry photos under the cut 😛
