Sketchbook Work

I have done a little more work in my sketchbook this weekend. I would have liked to get more done but there hasn't been a lot of time. Saturday I was at work and Sunday I helped Pam and Anne. Pam is area rep for region 9 of the Quilters Guild and the guild had a stand at a local craft show so I went along for the day to help out. Pam had worked very hard and organised a tombola to raise money for the guild. She made a lot of the prizes herself, we bought a few things and some very kind people donated items that they had made. The tombola was a huge sucess and raised £155 and the nicest thing of all was the handmade gifts which were recieved with great enthusiasm.

Anyway back to the sketchbook. This is a page from an old copy of Country Living, note the owl.

Continuing on from the work we were doing with Gina I have come up with my own interpretation of the owl.
I think he is a little scary though.

My necklace and bracelet are finished and I'm very happy with them. I covered an old box to keep them in as they really do need to be stored flat.

I particularly like the beaded fastening I made for the bracelet. The beads dangle very nicely when you are wearing it. You can just see them going of the edge of the picture.

Now I must go and do some work on my Log Cabin hanging.

Haha! The owl looks like a "Batowl" (as in Batman) but well done for doing more sketchbook work. The necklace and bracelet are beautiful.

The necklace and bracelet are even more beautiful in real life - they are excellent. I love the owl he looks cheeky! Thank you for helping Sunday and for your generosity with the tombola prizes it made for a good day.
