Today is Sunday time to look back in the rearview mirror and talk about my week . I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted for years by Kimberly@caffeinatedreviewer .
In my private life
It’s already the end of my second week of holiday and time is flying by!
This week has been a mix of doctor appointments (tendinitis among other) , visit to my favorite cousin and painting book edges.
I also am wearing a splint from my forearm to my fingers, thumb into the splint, to try relieving the tendinitis. But it’s so much more difficult to ype on the computer!
I am lucky it’s the left wrist or I would have been unable to paint these edges this week:
Daughter of the Moon Goddess is my second book edges (my first was Wolfsong some weeks ago). And I am pretty pleased with how it looks compared with the cover or the book here:
Then I painted another book edges this week too and that one was the biggest challenge as it was painting a character drew by Charlie Bowater from Chain of Gold! This was my third painting.
And this is the original cover I drew from:
I must say I am pretty please as I don’t have any artistic schooling.
And in other very annoying news: since an update Windows11 I have a blue screen from time to time, completely shutting down my computer!
It seems other have that problem but as I am not tech savy at all I hope Beware of the Husband will be able to help me….
On the blog this week (click on the graphic to read the post)
It was very calm here as I was busy creating and I only published two reviews
One is a contemporary retelling of Pride and Prejudice
The other is an incredibly atmospheric thriller.
Thanks for reading!
I’m in love with your painted book edges. Both this one and Wolfsong turned out so beautifully!
Oh my goodness you are so talented, those books turned out gorgeous! And sending you all the hugs, I hope the brace starts relieving you of pain soon *fingers crossed*!
What a talent you have, Sophie – those are beautiful! I’ve been declining the Windows 11 update so far. I’m not anxious to make any changes.
I so understand Teri! You’d figure that they would test everything properly but….
Those painted book edges are so lovely! (((big round of applause))) 🙂
Thank you Maddalena!
You painted that?! That’s beautiful! I’d be so afraid to mess up the book!
I did! And as it’s a collector edition, I was a little stressed out…
Oh, those book edge paintings are so gorgeous, Sophie! You are talented! I hope your tendinitis heals quickly. Yes, I’m not so tech savvy either. My hubby has to help as well. Lucky us to have these handy guys! 🙂
You have no idea Rachel! Well, yes, you know LOL
yes I am not going to Windows 11 anytime soon. I have enough problems. I loved These Silent Woods. Also you are a very talented edge painter. They look great.
Thank you Anne!
Those edges are gorgeous!! Quite talented
Oh noo- yeah whenever my wrist usually flares up it’s my good one which what I find the hardest is driving with that thing on- especially the turns. Writing too but, I can’t say I write that much anyway so.
Arhh!! This is why I hate windows, jumped ship at windows 8 My mac hardly ever has non-responsive tabs, versus all the time on my old dell laptop! Used to drive me mad.. technology is only good when it works and all that, ahah
I can’t drive with the splint honestly…
Those painted edges are beautiful!! You are so talented!
Thank you so much Samantha!
You are so talented! I think they turned out great! Vacations always go so darn fast, don’t they? I hope your tendinitis is better soon
Thank you Vicki!
Oh those are beautiful book edges! Wow. I hope your tendinitis is better soon. That sounds sooo painful.
It is bearable Greg I assure you but I hope this will help speed the healing process!
No problem, they really are beautiful
Your book edges are beautiful!
It looks like you have been having a great week here, with the painted edging on books and and some great reads you were able to pick up. Love seeing 5 star reads!
I did have a good week Renee!
Your book edges are wonderful! So talented. Hope this week is a good one.
Thank you Kimberly!
A number of bloggers seem to have a sore arm this week!
The book edge paintings are beautiful, I’m so impressed.
Wishing you a great reading week
Thank you Shelleyrae!
Those books are gorgeous! What a great hobby. I am not that artistic, so I admire your work even more.
Thank you Sam!!
Love those book edges! I have tendinitis in my left ankle and it bloomin hurts doesn’t it! And worse you can never fully rest your legs and arms so it never gets better!!! A never ending cycle!
I know Caro!
The book edges look amazing!
I’ve been avoiding the Windows 11 update and now I definitely don’t want it. YIKES!
Well Stephanie I totally get it!
I’m sorry you have tendonitis. I hope the splint helps the pain go away. Arm/hand pain is not fun. Your edge paintings are beautiful. I especially love the Cassandra Clare one you did. You’re very talented. You could do this as a business on Etsy, I think. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Thank you Jennielyse! But my edges take so much time that they would cost an arm and a leg!
I hope the splint helps with the tendonitis. Your book painted edges are simply gorgeous! You are quite the artist, Sophie!
Thank you Tanya!
Omg your book paintings are so good! You’re really talented. I like that they match the books too.
I’ve had tendinitis before too, but not as bad as yours. It’s extremely painful so I hope the splint works. x
Thank you Amy!!
