pencil sketches in a sketchbook..... some doodle-ness..... I have not used a pencil for a while! but I found a pack of sweet little mechanical pencils in the supermarket and tried them out.... doodles can lead you to realise some interesting and strange notions.... or nothing much at all..
but this kind of sketching and doodle work helps me with my stitched pieces - for example this recently completed mixed media collage: 'somewhere else'
the lines become more exact, of course, the figures are less speaking more....
this weekend is really rather muggy - my ten year old has baked a cake and I did very little to help, it was lovely to see his enthusiasm....
I am looking forward to a week of sharing new writing over at nevering - beginning tomorrow
enjoy your weekend x
