Well, it is a stretch but I'm very pleased with the watercolour renderings of the fabrics in this photograph of my wee guy. The face? less so - I need to work on this, but I am pleased that this was all drawn using a waterbrush, with no pre-sketching in pencil.

So far this holiday, and despite a niggling head cold, I have managed to tidy up the studio, install my new computer (!) and reclaim about 90% of unsold inventory for the end-of-year check.
And we've managed a few creative moments as a family too, mainly sketching and some watercolour painting in our new journals. I've added a few new illustrations to my summer journal. Who knows? It might be finished sometime soon!

This afternoon the Wee Guy finished decorating the cake by doodling over the icing with decorating pens. We've also made some melt-and-pour soaps, and finished the candied pecans. Listening to The Polar Express rounded the afternoon off quite nicely :)
Let Christmas commence!

Took myself and the knitting out for a break in between errands. Christmas shopping = all but done :)
On the pins = moebius shawl in gorgeous lumpy hand-dyed cotton, drop-stitch wave pattern for some 'easy' lace stitches
