I read few blogs on a daily basis, Fibermania is among them ... and I struck gold today! Mrs Mel is talking about her new sketchbook and showing drawings from her old one. I'm a bit obsessed with sketch books myself, though I am not using them much at all. I even bought a book on artistic journal keeping: "Drawing from Life: The Journal as Art".

But when I saw the old sketches, I realised that I was "medium" blind in one of mine. I had attempted to paint our old house in a rather more abstract way. It looked naff (and rather like the MSWindows logo). Now I know: it calls for a quilt!

I'm pleased and now have another project waiting to be begun. That's a "yay" and a "not-so-yay" all rolled into one.
