So........ I've been busy

Whoops! Didn't realise it's been so long since I blogged!

I've not knitted anything since I made a scarf when I was about 12 but when I found some lovely Aran Majestic wool for only £1.00 a ball I thought I'd give it a go and knit some squares for a blanket.  
I had to check YouTube first to remember how to cast on and off and then 100 squares later here's the finished blanket:

A French Knitting rug

Eek - I seem to have neglected my blog again!

I recently found the French Knitting I started a couple of years ago (with the intention of making a rug for Jess's bedroom) and decided to try and finish it. 

I had already sewn a lot of the knitted cord together but as it was starting to resemble the shape of a bowl I unpicked the stitching and tried a different method for sewing it all together.

I actually completely finished it all last night and can now share the pics:

The finished item measures approximately 75cm x 68cm.

It's been a long time since I last blogged - nearly 4 months! I've taken a slight colouring break for a variety of reasons but finally finished a colouring I started a while ago. 

This double spread is from Marcos Chin's "Fairies in Wonderland":

I used Caran D'Ache Pablo pencils, Prismacolor pencils and Pan Pastels.

Platypus - from Millie Marotta's Curious Creatures

Well, this week has been half-term for the kids and we've had family visiting so I haven't done much colouring but I did manage to finish this platypus from Millie Marotta's Curious Creatures last night.

This was completed using Caran D'Ache Pablo pencils and a white Faber Castell Pitt big brush pen.

2017 already?!?!

Well, I'm finally back following the Christmas holidays, a change in laptops and therefore a change in photo-editing software.

Here's a colouring I completed just before Christmas from the Good Wives and Warriors book - Escape to Christmas Past.

This was done with Prismacolor pencils and a couple of metallic gel pens:
