Welcome to Sketches and Stuff !

Good Morning Everybody !

this is my first attempt at blogging – so please forgive me in case something doesnot quite work yet. Thorsten from Sketchcrawl asked that innocent question „do you have a blog?“ about an hour ago – and now I do … let’s see how it works.

I will use this blog to post my sketches and possibly other objects (like my quilts and other textile objects), photos from my travels – maybe more.

For approx. 20 years I have been doing quilts (yes – these are the patchwork covers for beds which we always connect to the pioneers in the USA) – first very traditional one, later also smaller wall-hangings, my own designs – involving fabric dyeing, printing, glueing, plastic, paper and much more.

For one year I have been actively working on a City & Guilds Course with www.Lindakemshall.com that involves sketching and keeping a sketchbook -and lots of trouble with that initially. You know what I mean – „cannot ruin that nice empty clean white page sketchbook with my horrible drawing 🙂 “

But also I have always wanted to paint/draw – so I took 2 classes this year: the first one learning to draw following Betty Edwards technique, then another one on „sketchbooks for textile artists“ from Jan Beaney/ Jean Littlejohn (www.double-trouble-ent.com) – and that got me going.   

A week ago I found the www.sketchcrawl.com site and few other blogs – unfortunately I could not join the 20th worldwide sketchcrawl last Saturday but am definitley joining #21 – and am practising before.

So welcome and look out for more !
