O.K. I've been rubbish at posting my work up, but I have been drawing! Here is a quick worked up doodle today...I will post some more pictures from the last few days a bit later...but right now, I need to go and collect some fabric and tin filled parcels! Hoorah!

Forgot the teapot!

I almost forgot mr teapot. He is part of a set of drawing I am going to do for a series of small books. Hopefully more of these soon!

Day two


There are a few bits and bobs to show you today! I've been painting some more hearts, there are some new designs for the winter (shown unglazed). There is also todays drawing, which has taken the form of a pattern...I think my lazy mood may be passing!

A drawing a day

(nectarines in a bowl)

I have seen a few illustrators now doing a drawing a day, and posting them on their blogs...brilliant idea, and just what I need to get me out of a bit of a lazy mood. Here is todays drawing (for some reason much duller than it actually is!), as well as some pictures from the Borders Book Festival, in Melrose. I have been meaning to put them on here for ages!

It was a rainy day, but the gardens at Harmony House were full of flowers and huge marques!

It was much drier inside our tent, and full of children playing with feathers, and ribbon, and stickers and crayons, and chocolate, and listening to stories...

...even Rory Bremner popped in with his children...

... and Julia Donaldson, and the Gruffalo came to play!
