Pages from My Sketchbook

I have to admit, I am stuck at home with the kitchen remodel answering questions, accepting shipments and working with the contractors.  I am missing my studio very much and the opportunity to play with fabrics, my Sizzix machine and Mistyfusing.  I know I will get back there very soon, but in the meantime, I have my sketchbook and drawing is ever so soothing to me. Please do not copy my drawings.  All rights reserved.
The Ikea mouse re-dress. I have a bunch of stuffed mice from Ikea.  I have dressed some in fabrics, and one lives in the Mistyfuse booth - Heavy Metal Mouse.   I think this drawing would translate well into a quilt (via Sue Bleiweiss' suggestion), and that may happen.  I loved dressing the mice



Favorite things

Heavy metal alphabet A-P

Heavy Metal alphabet Q-Z and some other fun drawings

Beach houses

I am always testing myself in my sketchbooks not to use pencil.  This is one of those drawings.  Pilot Razor Point pen in black.  It's not perfect, because it was a straight on drawing project with pen, no pencil.

Abstrations.  Looking at objects and making them into something else.  These were done at a medical lab waiting to have my blood drawn for a physical.  More drawings to come.  Thank you for stopping by my blog.


  1. Love seeing your sketches, I really need to sit down and start doodling. I can't wait to see how you do your kitchen, we have a similar kitchen and a wall where you have the counter, so someday we want to take that out and do an island.


  2. I love your drawings. Mine never seem to turn out very well. Maybe I should do more?

  3. Love your draws especially the last one

  4. What interesting drawings in your Journal! Isn't the imagination a blessing from the Lord!
