Sketchbook Challenge 2012 March

'Flowers' Theme
As the month is coming to an end I added these pics to my sketchbook today .....
but as I'm always doodling , drawing, and stitching flowers there will be plenty more to come ...



  1. Dear Connie,
    I have just joined your merry band of followers and the reason why is because I was reading your profile on Flickr after you had commented on one of my sketchbook pages. You are a true inspiration to everyone. There are one or two faces I recognise in your members and I am sure like me they are thrilled to see your beautiful work and amazed that you have embraced modern technology so well.
    I dont usually gush like this, but having a remarkable mum myself who is nearly 80 it is great to meet you.
    Best wishes
    One I Made Earlier Today

    1. Many thanks Lynn. I am so pleased that I can use www to be in touch with so many lovely people who enjoy crafting as much as I do.
      I've been waiting for so long to have a spinal op which should help me to walk better - despite quite a lot of pain I enjoy most days stitching, drawing, making cards, etc and browsing many fantastic www sites.
      Best wishes to your mum, I hope she is a www addict like me!
      Thanks for following - I'll find you and keep in touch! Connie.
