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.

Sketchbook updates..........................

These ones don't show so well as they are just pencil sketches so far. I was doing coloured pencil but I don't care for it that much. SO for now I will sketch and maybe colour later.

I have to say here that I am copying pictures off of Pinterest. Purely for practice. If I do work to frame or whatever then it has to be my own work and ideas. Here in my sketchbook for me anything goes.

I am trying to work on the human form, be it cartoon or realality its getting proportion. That's why I am using Pinterest, to find examples to try to emulate.
