Today I am feeling greatly inspired with ideas thanks to this book:


The Private Life Of An English Field Meadowland – John Lewis-Stempel.

With this book, alongside Where My Wellies Take Me – Olivia Lomenech Gill, I have a clear vision what I want to be doing for the next few projects.

Keep an eye out!

Sunflower in Pencil

A sunflower upon the cafe table on which I have sat many times to eat crepes and toasties.

The paper was terrible for the use of pencils, and the pencils themselves were of cheap quality. But thanks to the water soluble pencils it managed to be decent, although water was not washed over it.

Bushy Bella

One bushy cat with more fluff and sleep in her than a hibernating grizzly bear, and just as fierce.

Lifelike(?) Leaf

Nature is such an interesting thing to draw, and my favourite, other than wood textures, is leaves!

I hope this looks real! Done in watercolour and enhanced in a mobile photo editor app.

Mini Felted Owl


Decided to challenge myself and make a mini felted owl! This one is the size of the previous felted owls face. Surprisingly I only pricked my finger once. Here is it against my finger for scale.


Either I am telling the truth, or have a very large finger.

Felted Owl


Created this fellow with the felting kit I had for Christmas. Isn’t it adorable?! …despite it being a little lop-sided.

100% British Wool

If you are interested in making one yourself, or another animal, then head over to http://www.craftylittlesheep.co.uk/

This website is great for books, wool and tips!

Creating this owl was my first time with the sponge mat and a single needle, instead of the brush mat and multiple needle tool.

P.S. I didn’t use all of the wool, so I got some left over to make a mini one!
