 Still cutting and pinning....notice I am also watching bears on the tablet whilst I work!
Yesterday's little haul from the garden - sweetpeas filling the house with their scent, broad beans were delicious!

It's Chaos I Tell You!

The state of my kitchen floor yesterday.  I need to get rid of some of the mess...

Sew Busy....

 Part of what I'm making at the moment - this took half a day.....
When I have a few spare minutes, I am working on a commission.  Another Alaskan bear, watercolour on paper.  I'm painting the background first and saving the bear for last, a trick I usually do wwhen the background is boring but I'm actually really enjoying painting these vivid green leaves.

Beagle...

I completed this yesterday - Derwent Drawing Pencils & Coloursoft pencils on pastel paper.  Yet another commission - this year has been my busiest so far since quitting the day job and going solo.  I have four more commissions waiting in the wings, two of dogs and two of bears so at least I can ring the changes and not get bored!

In other news, somehow I have to make a bus out of bits and pieces and fabric.  Could be a bit of a challenge...
