Genius + a reminder

Sketching with watercolour
Check it out! I felt like a complete genius today. I had saved this container with three compartment and this morning it dawned on me that it would be perfect when painting with watercolours!

You see, I always manage to get my watercolour water looking pretty grey and dirty, which means that the colours are less vibrant. But! With this container I first rinse off excess colour in one compartment, then rinse it in another one, wipe off excess water and THEN the brush goes into the clean water and then the paint. Much better. Also, it's a much better use of this container, because otherwise it would just be thrown away.

Told ya. Genius. ;-)

I still need to write a post about the Stitch and Craft Show - hopefully tomorrow!

And I just wanted to remind you of my quilts for Japan auctions. There is about 3 days left. I would love to see them get a few more bids! And remember, I receive no money from these quilts. Everything, that doesn't go to eBay and Paypal, will be donated to the Red Cross.
