Doodle Art

It looks like a giant Easter egg in his hands although I drew it a while ago and Easter was not on my mind.

Both created on my android tablet using Corel Painter Mobile.

Green Crazy Patch

I bought a new book recommended by Queeniepatch called The Visual Guide to Crazy Quilting Design by Sharon Boggon which is very informative and which inspired me to have a go at an embroidered patch. I have done crazy quilting before but not with lots of embroidery decoration.
My plain block is shown above and I started the embroidery on one of the short corners below.
The author of the book, Sharon Boggon also has the website called pintangle where you will find the 'Take a Stitch Tuesday' challenge which is excellent for learning embroidery stitches each week.

Mushroom House in a Cup

A few weeks ago a friend did a workshop and we made houses and gardens to fit in a cup. Most of the fabric is felt with a little lace and it is adorned with embroidery, beads, sequins and buttons.

Grimoire Book - Pages 17-29

This and the next drawing are my versions of pages by Malcolm Bird from 'The Witches Handbook'.
I think his drawings are wonderful and the rhymes are funny.

The leaf fairy or thrush sprite is my version of a painting by Howard Swindell.
Check Pinterest for the fabulous original.

The original of this little fairy can be found in Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book.

Grimoire Book - Pages 5-16

I forgot to say yesterday that Helen coloured the edges of all the pages too.
I've done all the other work in the book, Pinterest was very helpful.

Mini Garden and Grimoire Book

The little house in my miniature garden is dropping to pieces so I'll have to think of making a new one.

This is a handmade book I got from friend Helen a few years back which I have recently finished.
She completed the first few pages to get me going....

I'll show you what I've done next time.
