Another colouring, this time from Tomislav Tomic's "Sprookjesbos" which is the Dutch version of "Vilin San".

For this I used Arteza Everblend pens, Amazon gel pens, Caran D'Ache Neocolor II and white Posca pens.

Missed me?!

OK, so loads has happened since the last time I blogged and there's certainly lots going on out there in the world at the moment so now seems as good a time as any to start blogging again!!

This is the first time I used my Arteza Everblend pens with Pan Pastels for the background.

From "Everything Beautiful Has a Mark of Eternity".

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.

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.
