Love the drawings!!!

I don't draw but I do crochet a lot. Here are some past projects and my current one.

Envelope style Ipad case:



Fingerless gloves:


Stuffed animal in university colors:


Classic heirloom baby blanket (currently working on it-that's why you see a stitch marker):

Thanks. I don't even own an Ipad, I have a Google Nexus tablet, but I have made so many cases for them LOL. I love making cases - they are shorter projects so I don't get bored with them as much. So cases are one of my favorite things to make

These are all great. But I really love the one of the cat in pencil. STUNNING.

Nice work girls. I can't draw to save myself, but I can appreciate those who have artistic skills.

Cheers,

John.

Over the years , I have made many steel creations. My highest achievement being a handbuilt 1957 pickup. I purchased a really good welder and created many works of art . An Emu[lifesize], Large steel hands , holding a bottle, A sculpture of starsign 'Virgo' which I won open floral art with [ very hard , welding in individual hairs] a 'supersize ' miniature daffodil in a 1 gallon bottle.. a 6 foot lilium flower bloom..You must have 'positive' forevision and be happy about what you create .I never see any of my artworks as brilliant, but sit back and listen to the critics... Arthritis in the hands/back has slowed me and so has age.. I still have 1 Emu to create as a donation exhibit to a native wildlife park.. then my work is done!Cocky/Sweetie/ Mo

I love to draw and paint. This is my first attempt at colored pencils...
The budgies are all my budgies, Murphy, Sammy, Petey, Joey and Guido! Its still a work in progress, I need to finish the background and tweak a little bit.
