Drawing all my daughter’s clothes for #Clovember (week three)

A tricky week: I was away on Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday – and as a result, found myself catching up by drawing and colouring¬† four of these images this morning. The result is that I’m not very happy with a few of them, but never mind. Part of the #Clovember challenge, I think, like anyContinue reading “Drawing all my daughter’s clothes for #Clovember (week three)”

A surprising thing

All right, so this lovely thing happened. I’ve had this Gudrun Sjoden dress pinned to my wish I could justify that Pinterest board for.. well, for 25 weeks, according to Pinterest itself. Something about the pattern and the colours really appealed to me, and the cut is one of the few that actually suits myContinue reading “A surprising thing”
