Sketching 2.0

We have a lovely, shaded porch here in Key West with 2 comfy wicker chairs and a table - one for Bailey and one for me.

  Even though I love to spend my time sewing, I hate to be stuck inside.  I have been working on handstitching my silk  block, and that I can do sitting outside, but that is slow going, and truth be told, I'm getting a bit bored.

For those of you that have followed my blog for a while, you know that I dabble with sketching whenever I come down here.  Last year it lasted a week!  Well, I am giving it a go again. 
Let's call it Sketching version 2.0

  I brought my markers and sketchbook with me, but I needed something to put them in.  Here's the perfect mug that I bought for myself to hold the markers.  It makes me feel like an artist.
I have the perfect place to sit and sketch
with my patient little buddy.
They love her here in Key West.  Lots of people stop me on the street and ask to pet her.

I decided not to limit myself to a once a day sketch or a theme.  I just want to experiment and have some fun.    Structure and restrictions has never really worked for me.  Let's see how it goes and how long it lasts.  I'll keep sharing as I go, if you like.


  1. That looks like the perfect place to sit and relax.
    I would love to be there right now, spent today getting supplies and gas for the generator.


  2. How great! I love to sketch by working full time often keeps me to tired to in the evenings. Except for two years ago when Heather Ross issued a challenge and a small group of us sketched everyday and posted to a flickr group. Once the group stopped I lost the motivation. Sigh. Looks lovely where you are.

  3. another goal...but down on The start sketching. Goooooo Cheryl

  4. I'd spend some nice hours on that inviting. Maybe not sketching. My good intentions of sketching more go the way of loose weight pretty quickly.

  5. Love your sketches especially the last one...


Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear from you.
