Sketchcrawling on a Sunny Spring Day

sketchcrawl.com is a website that organizes drawing marathons around the world regularly. Having read about that from a fellow blogger already a few months ago, I had the opportunity to join in yesterday. The three of us had lots of fun! I haven’t found the time to practice and improve my drawing skills lately, so this was a brillant excuse to go out and actually draw something. Here’s the result:

Ornamented Lamp Post
Daffodil

In fact, I got reminded that I like doing this enough so I went out on my own today to do some more drawing. And as is often the case when I’m looking for something to draw, I found a place I must have walked by dozens of times by now and I never actually saw what’s there:

Old Church-tower Cross

It’s the old cross from the tower of a little church which has been replaced by a new one, and they put the old one up at the backside of the church. It’s a great idea, when do you usually have the opportunity to look at a cross from a church-tower close up? It’s mounted on a big stone and looks really beautiful. So, hopefully there will be more sketching in the near future, I definitely plan to be there for the next sketchcrawl!

On a different note, my blog stats insist that there’s something to celebrate today! I can’t really believe it, but this is my 100th post on this blog. That’s a couple of years worth of weekly posting, which just about fits, so I haven’t been slacking very often.  For the curious, here are some stats: I’ve had 33,706 page views till now, and my most popular page is the Needlepoint Lace Tutorial. This blog has been quite an adventure, and I think quite a few projects around here get finished just so I can post them here, which is a good thing.

So, on this note, I’d like to ask you what you like most on my blog and would love to read more about. I won’t promise anything, but I’ll try to take up any suggestions you have.

  1. Congratulations on 100 posts!

    My favourite part of your blog is seeing your own projects, mainly because they tend to be crafts that I don’t currently do but would love to try if I had more time, particularly your quilting and your lace.

    Saying that though, I also love your book and museum reviews!
