Fiona's February letters

Apologies if you have already read this on my blog - but I am trying to keep here and there up to date!

So far so good, altho I feel as if I may be tempting fate by celebrating that I am managing keep up with the project this year! I am possibly a bit in front, but when I did the calculation I realised that four letters a month only gives you 48 letters, not 52, so I need to stay on top of it and publish some a bit early.

I am still enjoying playing with the coloured pencils that Hiro gave me when we visited Japan last year.  and I am learning lots about how sand compacts - it is quite incredible.

E got me started again - with an Emerald theme


Here is F - with a theme of Fuchsia




Then G got hard. It has a Green theme, but my it was tough work poking the pencils into the sand as you can see!  After G I had to empty all the sand all and start all over again.



And so we made it to H - with a Hot Pink theme and the pencils were behaving again…


The things you learn.

  1. Hello Fiona, I love them all but if I had to choose a favourite it would be F for fuchsia! Sweet!

  2. I like the photos from two angles, to really show the colours of the pencils.

  3. I can see why you are so "besotted" with these gorgeous sets of colored pencils, Fiona! I, too, love the fuchsia, and the shots of the pencils from different angles (including the full box of pinks)...

  4. I love the way the pencils cast a coloured shadow. Really interesting how that happens.

    1. That's really quite bizarre isn't it Lyndell?
