This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

Unfinished is all I have at the moment. I have been drawing loads of stuff but have not had time to finish them yet. So here are a few rough drawings

I like horses and I am trying to find ways to do quick sketches

My camera does not capture drawings very well either, so these are not so good. Wonder what they will be like painted? I would like to do some plain old drawings but I need to find a fixative to stop them smudging and fading. This is my sketch book anyway so I guess it really doesn't matter for now, Its water colour I am practicing.
I like to do faces, lots of faces

I really should quit wasting time doing this and get on to more practical things. I need to get sewing. I am all done with my garden for this time to work on Christmas gifts. I am still enjoying the sketch books though. I don't seem able to stop.


  1. No keep drawing they are lovely.

  2. I like your sketches and doing what brings us pleasure is never a waste of time.

  3. Janice, you are so talented! Your sketches are amazing! There is a fixative in Michael's you can use, so your sketches won't smudge ;o) Thanks for sharing these! I really enjoyed them ;o)

  4. I have a batch of WIPs that I must get out of "progress" and into completion! Good for you -- and doing them well, too!
