I’ve been slowly colouring a paisley design with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils, which I am wildly keen on. I’ve had four of these Dover colouring books for years, and use them occasionally for embroidery or bead embroidery or miniature rug designs. I never thought I’d colour them, but as long as I can still see the linework it doesn’t matter.
I can’t do too much because of chronic tendonitis, but as long as I wear my cuff, I can do a bit each day.

No, he’s the King of Colour today, with his magic square on the side of his chair and his faithful dog, he is embracing fuchsia to cheer himself up. He does look a little glum but colour works wonders.
Success is not measured by how quickly it comes. He’s been waiting and waiting and it’s all getting tiresome but he is concentrating on colour today and not thinking about how slow success is in coming.
I had another nightmare about my last workplace. That was a bit of a downer but I woke up determined to focus on colour.
