Feeling Sketchy.

I've spent a lot of time with my sketchbook lately.  Just playing and thinking.

Thinking about a painting series I'm working on.
They are of Bodie, California.  It's a ghost town that I'm pretty much obsessed with.

Thinking about babies.
And I'll save you asking the question.  No, I'm not.  It's just lot's of people I know are having babies.
This was based on a photo of a gorgeous tattooed lady on flickr.  However, it doesn't look anything like her face.  I was channeling Marilyn or something because that's who I think she looks like.

Thinking about tattoos.
I want more.  Now.  I have a few ideas for an embroidery tattoo.  The one I really want it much more complex than this, I'll share that some time later.  I'm going to use this design for patches.
Thinking about a local stitching group.
I've been brainstorming lots of ideas for a flier.  I want to stitch it onto card stock, scan it and add in the details when they're finalized.

Thanks for looking!  Tune in later to see what made my day...

I know what you mean about the babies. My mind says "Plenty of time" my body says "Now! Yesterday!"

Thank you so much for spreading the word about The Toy Society. I have become somewhat of a local recruiter for the cause.

haha, despite what the paper and the news is saying about an overall decline in the us birthrate I'm not seeing it. Everyone is having a kid, lol.

It's really my pleasure to tell people about it, i had so much fun with my first drops i can't wait to do more. I'm really happy that my post has encouraged more people to join the fun :)

Thank you, Sam. I thought about placing a special warning at the beginning just for you, as I remember from your "7" that anything pregnancy related freaks you out, lol.
