Over the past week or so, Radio 4 has been featuring knitting and asking for listeners to knit the schedule. We (that's nudinits) have several pictures included - see if you can spot them!

On the needles this week: little Valentine's things, but you'll have to wait to see them.
Coming up - I've long wanted to do a tutorial on how to paint on fabric with Inktense pencils and blocks. Now that I will be making some calico cushion covers, it will be an ideal opportunity to kill two birds with one stone - watch this space.
I just need to make a cover for the bed with a large piece of patchwork that I inherited when my mum died, and make some cushion covers - time to get tht sewing machine out and on the desk!
I have NEVER had anywhere to keep my materials before, let alone keep them all tidy and easily accessed. It really is so exciting and very timely, as there is plenty of work waiting in the wings. I'm a very happy lady right now!

This was drawn using Faber Castell coloured pencils (wonderful things!) on The Langton Extra Smooth watercolour paper. It's now for sale in my Etsy shop.
Next up....not sure, but nothing using coloured pencils for a while!
...or otherwise known as thinly veiled touting for business! It's got to be done I'm afraid, but it is an excuse to look back on some of my favourite commissions.
This was Sam, painted in acrylic, and I had such fun painting him. Not just for the challenge of a wet dog, but those ripples on the water and the drip - heaven to work on!
This was a painting that seemed to have a life of it's own - it was done so quickly, I couldn't believe at the time that there were so few problems with it. Again painted with acrylics.
No matter what medium I am working with, to be making and creating is the best!
