Can't Stay Away From My Pencils!

Oh what enjoyment I get out of that pencil case and it's contents. I have been diligently practising with my pencils but I just can't seem to leave the Bear people alone in my family. I am sure they are trying to hide from me...I tried...
and whilst I enjoyed it, coercing my big handsome, furry boy Bruno into the chair was much more fun and he was the perfect model....
I love his big honey tummy! I then spoke very sweetly to little Rosie and asked her to bring her handpainted hat box to see what we could create....
She is such a cutie. Now while these may not be masterpieces art wise, I am have been enjoying challenging myself with self imposed little rules about freehand drawing....no rulers, no tracing of any kind. Just pencils and eraser. I don't trace anyway but I have been known to use my ruler..sssh!
Not being impatient with self-improvement I think is my biggest challenge.
Ok! Sewing! I had a lovely evening with the Wednesday night girls last night. I love catching up with these ladies and it was extra special to see friends Jan and Robyn there. Robyn P. you were missed xx
Between flapping the gums big time I did get some more tiny hexies done.....oh and did I mention Diane's chokkie slice and delicious jam drops YUM! I didn't say I had any mind you I just said did I mention them...
That's all from me folks, have a lovely day.
Namaste and blessings,
Michelle xxx
