Oh...and another thing...

I have started to stitch into my drawings. This is the first one without any collage and its very simple at the moment. The only thing I had when the idea struck me was some cotton strong and I just HAD to do something then! I have ideas of girls in swishy ballerina-like skirts. Very much inspired by Degas and lots of fashion references that escape my mind now! I will post a blog soon on some of these inspirations. I am working on some of these ideas, using my Grandmother's old cotton threads and maybe some of her silk ribbons (for embroidery) if I can bring myself to use them! (Again, my scan is grubby but so is this drawing. I was so excited about it when I was making it that I didn't take too much care. As it was just a test I figure its ok just once!)
