Ruth in odalisque pose at the paper mill

A gorgeous sunny weekend. I didn’t really feel like going to the life drawing session on Saturday. I think sometimes as a mother I spend so much time doing things for and with my children I feel a bit at a loss doing things on my own.The thought of a few hours of drawing without having to break off to clean something or cook something can be almost intimidating. I am glad though when I make myself do it.

Lovely job on this, Julie. I'm glad you went, too. I know what you mean about the free time stuff; sometimes when you have it it's overwhelming.

Hello from Switzerland,

Just came across your blog via a Lucy Pepper linky.

It's delightful. I am very envious of those folk who can illustrate, and your illustrations are lovely.
I'll think I'll create an illustration blog roll as I already have "Wild Yorkshire" on there already.

Regards Catherine
