...so, no summer....

...to speak of after all...!

What a miserable summer we've had...!
About five days of sunshine - and those not all together! :(


Still, the garden has thrived with the rain and the chicken poo so can't complain... ;)

Been very busy this summer - between my new job and the chooks, and my volunteer work at Marie Curie - doesn't leave much 'spare' time for my crafts.

But I've managed a few new projects and I'm please how my drawings are coming on.

Up until now, I've tended to draw in black ink, as most peeps want to colour them themselves but I've coloured a few myself and enjoyed doing them.

My chooks have has an effect... lol!


Rooster Cockburn



Cocky Lochie



My Chicken Family


And I've just designed a fabric for my kitchen blind...!


I'm doing some curtains and cushion covers to match in with it.


And of course, my gorgeous grandbabbies have become victims too!



My lickle Ada...




and Elvie


Toby's birthday card featured someone - well - recognizable....


...and I realized I had a couple of dogs missing from my wall.

Kinder, the Weimaraner was inseparable from my son Rob when they were small so I drew them from an old photograph



My friend Teri Sherman had her first book published - a collection of Gothic colouring pages! It's on Amazon now at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gothic-Halloween-Scary-Adult-Coloring/dp/1941325440/ref=zg_bsnr_11357541011_42
so if you love colouring and like the more Gothic style of drawing get yourself over there! 

Here's a sample of Teri's work. I've coloured it in Prisma pencils, which is quite new to me - not used coloured pencils since school!
Teri's work can be seen at Delicious Doodles



I've also been making some digi-style drawings. Most of you will know - I'm not over-keen on the dysmorphic big-eyed girls which have been so popular in recent years - I really son't get the attraction of them and certainly don't have anyone on my card-list that would appreciate them so I draw slightly more realistic ladies - still in a graphic form but more 'normal'.



My 'Cherry Blossom Girl'


I have more which I shall update when time allows!
