Good evening everyone,

This weekend we got to say ‘Good evening’ instead of ‘Good morning’ sorry about the delay. I guess I could blame on the severe weather that happening in Geelong and Victoria at the moment 🙂

Yep, the weather does affect my productivity. For example, take a 3 hours nap in the afternoon instead of sewing which not usually happen as I like to make the most of my weekend creating something.

So now I am fully awake (thankfully to my 2nd double shots latte after a nap) think I will share you something little different but still relate to my embroidery art.

The online course. Lately, I become an online student. After experiment a few creativities along with my embroidery art, I realised that there is so much out there that I don’t know and I should know. Working full time during the week, working on my embroidery art at night, and market on some weekend. The market season is coming soon for a few months, check out my markets page for more info >>> www.hoorayhoop/markets .
With the limited of time, an online course is the best option for me.

I start with The Watercolor Workshop on Udemy. Very basic but full of knowledge that I could learn from. I really enjoy it and I could see that after this course my skill on watercolour will definitely improve.

I paid $14.94 (63% off from $39.99) pretty good deal to start with. Take a look at the course outline below, you may like to try yourself.

That’s all about it for this weekend. Thank you again for being here. I think I better go back to study. Will show you the results of my improvement sometime later.

Next Saturday I may see you late again as I will be part of Geelong Baby and Children’s Market 9-1 at Barwon Valley Activity Centre. It will be my first time with them and I am looking forward to it 🙂 If you are around, I hope to see you there.
