I know this is a terrible picture but that's life. This is the sketch I did for the one minute challenge issued by miss Pamela.

She's missing one eyebrow; that infernal buzzer....

It was fun. I'll have to dress her up now. I'd like to do some sketches and do some DJPettit style fabric art stuff with them one of these days.

I haven't been in the mood for the past few days. You know how that is, so I've been cleaning and straightening instead.

I think the camera has a spot on it that needs cleaned. I always forget until I'm looking at the pictures. That spot beside her hair has been showing up on a lot of photos lately. The spot near her neck however is from lemon dill sauce that I made for the salmon patties tonight. I thought I got it wiped up. hee I was going to tell you where I got the recipe but I can't think of which blog it was from. I followed a bunch of art links today. I'll post the recipe some time. It was yummy. I'll have to track her down and thank her, whomever she was, some day.

I feel like I've been out of the loop for days!! Your drawing is fun, this was a hard challenge as I spent time as I was doing mine wondering "uh oh, is time almost up?" lol!
I have so many things to work on some fabric collages and new things to play with...since fabric is such a big part of me. I love DJPettits things. I can't wait to see what you come up with. I know what you mean about mood though, it's the be-all/end-all of getting things started!
Let's play with fabric, shall we?

LOL! I get food on my keyboard from time to's the sauces and gravies. Today it was snowflakes on my camera lense. Or in my eyes! That snow is cold when it hits you right in the eye!

Your drawing is cool, it has character.

I think your drawing is funky! Food bits and all :)

MMmm....the lemon dill sauce sounds yummy. And with salmon patties.

I love the style of DJPettit. And fabric is so much fun to work with isn't it?

Look forward to seeing what you come up with Lisa.

She has flair! I ran way, WAY over time - I didn't even hear the buzzer over all the noise going on in the house. But it was fun. I like the sound of the lemon dill sauce - what is the base for it, I wonder...mayo?
Hope you're having a good week!

Lol, I don't think I'd get past the eyebrow alone in one minute :o)

ugh - I just wandered away looking at other blogs...I need to go back to bed though - been fighting a sinus thing for a week and I am nearly flat out again...urgh...

now why did I bore you with that?

I like your long-necked ladies - but what I like best is how you do eyes (even when t hey are missing an eyebrow).

Lisa, let's! I just bought some fat quarters that were out of my norm to work with. pretty fun. :) I'm so glad your mom is doing well right now.

Thanks Sombra. lol One of my kids spilled soda, of all things, in the keyboard. I won't even tell you what all I found when I popped the keys. lol You're supposed to catch snowflakes with your tongue..not your eye. :)You sure do take some pretty pictures, though!

Dotee, lol thanks. It was some yummy sauce. I'll put the recipe for both up maybe later today. I do love working with fabric. So much fun.

lol Tinker. I was standing next to the microwave using is as a timer so I would hear it..which is why I got lemon dill sauce on it. Yes, mayo is the base! I wasn't sure how I'd like it but I really did.

Sarah, you might surprise yourself! I did.

Me, I hope you get over the sinus thing soon. It's so frustrating to be sick when you have so much to do. Thanks about the eyes. You know, Nancy Taylor was my art teacher back in elementary school and she taught us to make eyes that way and no matter how I start out,I can't get away from doing them that way. She also taught us how to do toothbrush splatter. :) I loved music and art days. Hope you feel better. (and you didn't bore me)

Wow, you drew that in one minute? I'm with Mrs. Blythe, I'd probably get an eyebrow done in that time :)

Anyone who drips lemon dill sauce on her drawing has to be a passionate, sensual being!
