Flowers for The Sketchbook Project

I have felt rather tired, still exercising my knee and doing some tidying and trying to get stuff finished for Christmas.
I have to finish off my Sketchbook Project and the last few pages are taking me a while to sort out what to put in.
I was trying to get some embossing on some scrap paper done using my cuttlebug and in doing so had cut up scraps I had used under other things I had done when spraying with various sprays. I rather liked the look of the paper so drew flower shapes using a fine sharpie and coloured them with Lyra watercolour crayons.
Nothing spectacular but fun to do.
I have so many flowers out in the garden at the moment the simple shapes are always my favorite, I even prefer the single roses and they are fun to get on to paper when ones mind is elsewhere.
Nothing very exciting to report, still damp, the garden will not like it when the hot dry weather comes, everything is so soft. My clematis is going mad high in the plum tree.
John not home much, he has had a run of meetings, poor man, so I will have to feed the dogs and chooks tonight, carefully, and organise something for him to eat so that if he comes home hungry there is food for him. A casserole I think, not that there is much to make it of, but enough I think.
I need to go shopping.

Hi Penny, so sorry to hear about your knee. I hope it will soon improve and you can get back to sewing again. I am so impressed that you have nearly finished your sketchbook project. I have masses to do on mine yet. Oh dear, now I am all in a Take care and enjoy your enforced rest.

It sounds so nice over there many flowers in the garden. All I can see here at the moment is the cold stuff - snow. It looks pretty when it is all white but I've soon had enough of it.

We've had elections Penny and what a turnaround. Thank goodness they'll now stop that pipeline of water from the country going to city folk's gardens. Might be some hope for the farming community now.
I have a new sketchbook and watercolour pencils - from Aldis so might get down to drawing again.
