Sketchbook Challenge/studioQ

As August is about to come to an end, I decided I had better get my Sketchbook Challenge entered on Flicker.  The theme this month is "Everyday Things".  Great little challenge in that the subject is SO broad...here is my entry:
Morning Ritual

Every morning, after we have had our walk and breakfast, my husband and I sit on the back porch and do crossword puzzles from the Star-Telegram.  There are two smaller puzzles on a different page than the NYTimes puzzle....we usually don't even attempt that one as we would be all day trying to finish it!!!!

And yesterday, my studioQ bunch met here at my house...great meeting as usual!  Several of the gals had wanted to do an activity on silk screen printing and although I had not done it for a few years, it is a medium that I love and had wanted to get back to again.  So this gave me an excuse to get all the stuff out and create some of my own prints!  Here are some pictures from our "Show and Tell" which we always have first before project time.

Heather's Latest...she uses a lot of her own dyed fabric.

Beth had more of her beautiful beaded spools to show.

Bethany was showing her painted fabric and some Christmas cards she made from it.

Susan has really been bitten by the Zentangle bug!

The start of our studioQ zentangle collage;  a few tiles yet to be done.

Some of or silk screen endeavors!


  1. I was just commenting to my hubby a couple of days ago that a few years down the road we will probably have to read our newspapers on ipads because the paper printed version would become cost prohibitive. It won't be the same.

  2. Things are looking very cool!! Love your drawing of every day things.
