More from Miles and My Pencils

A few more bits and bobs from the Pioneer Village in Miles...
Chicken scratch maybe...
Loads of green depression glass.
Vintage sewing machines.
Vintage spools..
Pretty China..
Lots of clocks...
and lamps...
and Mr R. with the vintage car....sorry can't tell you anything about it.
So if you are ever passing through Miles in Queensland it is a great spot to stop, have a cuppa and a wander through the Pioneer Village.
Last night I curled up in my favourite chair with my sketchpad and pencils. Something I love to do.
Want to have a peek? Not stitching related I am sorry...
Some 'country cousins' of my Alphabet Bears....
Ever felt like a 'lone wolf'...
and a 'sweet little someone' I know....
I am really trying to improve my drawing skills and would love to do portrait type drawing......oohh so far to go but I love trying...
Enjoy your Saturday,
Namaste and Blessings,
