Wellington in Aqua and Apricot

Well, the aqua didn't come out quite right!  I think a ProMarker splurge is in order but I'm deliberately putting it off until my new studio is ready so I can make a new storage case to hold them - my old one's full :)

Easter Duckie

I love this image, he's so cute going for the little worm.  The pre-shaded image makes coloring a breeze but I think it's come out a little on the grungy side for these very defined dots and stripes papers.

Brewing Notes Book - First Page

Feel free to raise your eyebrows but I'm actually quite proud of the fact that I appreciate a good ale. Preferably one brewed from the waters of the River Aire, although since moving further west I have discovered that the beers from the Wharfe and Ribble are just as good.

OH shares my passion, not surprisingly for a northern bloke!  So it was only a matter of time before we started brewing our own.  I bought him a kit for his birthday and we were off!

I haven't done a batch in ages while I've been renovating but my lovely loft is now finally compete for want of light fittings.  I've very deliberately left a little space next to the loft hatch that's just the right size for a couple of barrels.  I finally have a (very) micro brewery!

It can be a challenge keeping track of the various barrels, when things need adding to them and most importantly when they are ready to bottle and drink!  So I've made a little brewery note book to hang on a peg next to my little brewery.  I've yet to fill it in as I've still to retrieve the sterilizer from OH's house where it's been spending the winter neglected - he's not good at keeping on top of such things - his talents lie in drinking the results!  So now I'm itching to get started!

Here's the first page of my little note book all ready for the first batch of notes, complete with tags for the obligatory tasting notes!
