I was quite taken with Lori Kennedy of The Inbox Jaunt's
post about quilted scenes from a story book.
She challenged her self to quilt one each day.
Check out her post here - she is so good.
I thought that was a great idea - but since I have this wedding coming up soon, I thought I would practice with doodling with a pen and paper first.
Now I know this is not a great drawing - but I'm so surprised that at my first attempt to draw without lifting my pen (as it would be if I was stitching on my sewing machine) that the rooster looks like a rooster! And that the body and the head are on the same page!
I also wanted to practice doing the date without lifting my pen, as I often quilt the date on my quilts
I hope to challenge myself to draw (doodle each day) until I get back from my honeymoon and I start quilting again.
Only nine more days until the wedding - and the forecast is rain.
I'm not going to worry about that just yet.
