This blog is where I share with you all my quilting and sewing progress. I love English Paper Piecing and hand quilting but also enjoy making small items like pincushions and throw cushions. Please leave your comments and let me know you've dropped by.

Also, please feel free to have a look at my new cycling blog. This is a new hobby for me so there will probably be some fun and falling on the way!! Click on the pic at left hand side.

Some Little Bits of Artwork

I was hoping to have a quilt update today but it hasn't happened, so here are some pieces of artwork I prepared earlier!!!
In fact MUCH earlier. Probably about 3 years ago or more!

"GINGER" ( pastels )

"PROUD AND WISE" ( Graphite)

"BOAT REST" ( Watercolour )

"SHEEP" (Thousands of dots!! 'Fineliner' pens )

"HUNGRY" (Thousands of dots!! Fineliner pens)

"SHELTERING" ( Very quick graphite drawing!)

"SHORE" (Pastels)

Pastels are probably my favourite medium for creating artwork. I have never been very successful with watercolour ( which shows!!) but I was beginning to really enjoy the 'dot' work with Fineliner pens, both black and colour.
The pen pictures you see above are not finished ( I have quilts following that same pattern too!!) but I did them as an experiment and was relatively pleased with the result.
I am now off to make chicken salad, then I will be settling down to quilting!!
Thanks for popping by!!
