Keeping busy!

Oh my, it's been a while! I've been busy. To give myself a challenge (even though I am doing two others!) I decided to join Carla Sonheim's Silly Drawing class. It only goes for three weeks and as I find drawing difficult, I thought it would be a fun thing to do. And it is!  It only takes about 10 minutes each day and already I feel more relaxed about drawing and playing with my pens and pencils.

The day after I joined that class I found A Letter a Week blog and was so fascinated by everything I saw that I decided to join up! This challenge consists of creating two alphabets during the year in whatever medium you like to work with. After finishing each alphabet they must be put together in some way to be suitable for exhibition. Here are my first four letters of the alphabet. They are only 7cm x 7cm. I like working small!  I've used linen and lawn to make the little sachets. I really like how crisp and firm the linen is. It irons beautifully.

I am still working on my Travellers Blanket every night and here is another square. This one represents some of the flowers/weeds I see on my morning walks.


  1. Mmm, works beautifully, especially the seeding. I'm really quite into seeding as a textural contrast at the moment and it backs up your flower perfectly.
