Tomorrow we are going away on holiday. We are looking forward to it.
Before we go, some pictures to keep you waiting until we are back!
My brown top is growing. The blocks won´t stay in that order but I like seeing them on my "design wall". I can check the size better that way.

And now for something completely different!
My DS likes drawing so some time ago we went to a great shop to get some material. The place was so inspiring that I had to buy things for me too. And then I discovered Danny Gregory and his books.
From then on there was no come back! I have started keeping an illustrated journal.
There is still a (very!) long road to go before I can achieve anything good but the way is the goal! It is fun, very rewarding I think and it makes me watch things in a different way.

Of course my son (10) doesn´t spare his critics but that´s ok. We both learn that way.

That´s it for now. I hope to draw more on holiday and to have lots to show when we come back.

Have a nice summer

Your brown quilt squares remind me of some windows at a coffee shop I like. I was there last night and resolved to photograph those windows and turn them into a quilt.

Have fun on holiday! I hope you are going somewhere cool or somewhere with water.

I sure like your work in progress. A different look for a quilt block. And your color selection is one that I really like.
