and a little bit about me too!

No time for sewing...

Well I have been running a bit low on energy these last couple of days with my sewing projects, as I have been thinking about more illustration ideas, and as I work full time, sitting in front of a sewing machine at 8pm has been a bit of a struggle this week!

My eyes are tired, but I still look about all the time for ideas and inspiration..

'Mood boards' are a bit of a posh word for my inspiration boards are just giant pinboards..

Covered with pictures I have painted and patterns and colours I like..

I rush about, using my time as best as I can..I just wish I had a few more hours of energy! I want to make some more 'teacup bears' too and some more animals..

But my eyes have had it today...

Happy Thursday, and nighty night!!

It terrified me when I was at art college when the lecturers pointed out that most furnishing fabric companies expect a design a day... hence I went freelance and eventaully had a family and gave up completely! one day I will design and draw again! ;D

Keeping it fresh and new is sometimes a big struggle and big hugs and any artistic virtual hugs are yours...

I'm astounded at how much you achieve while still working full-time, when I was working full-time I used to fall asleep some evenings and was certainly fit for nothing even if I did stay awake! I do love that coal tit painting so much (bird obsession again!) xx
