Not Much Stitching.

I have done a little bit of stitching on Brinton Hall...but not much.
No Splendid Samplering to speak of either. I have been giving my pencils a good work out though. It is like "different but the same"! You see I took some references shots whilst at Dubbo zoo of the sweetest Koala Mama and her bub and have been trying to draw them in more of a natural setting. The thing is that I couldn't decide which shot to use so I have begun 2 different you do! The first is further along...still a bit to go....more leaves and fine detailing.
The second just begun....the prelim sketch...

Onto the beautiful Archers paper and progress finally. I have had to invent portions of this one because Mama in the photo had her face buried in the tender leaf tips.
Lots more to do. It's been lovely remembering these sweeties. I can't leave them alone! So much so I have sore shoulders....I think some quiet hexies might be in order for a break. I could do housework? Nah! Hexies sound better.
Yesterday I shot up the Darren Lockyer Way to deliver a friend's lovely quilts to my friend FIONA FROM BUBZRUGZ We meet halfway at a little country town we like and had a very nice catchup, coffee and a good old chinwag.
Of course a selfie or 3 was in order. But unfortunately I fail selfies everytime lol!
So of course you just get silly! Lol!
Happy birthday to nice to have friends to be silly with.

Enjoy your day,
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
