no idle hands.

My little Moleskine notebooks are somewhere on me all the time. I find it very hard to sit still without having something in my hands. When my pen is out I transform into an obsessive sketcher and list-maker, so when I was invited to join 365 Sketch, I had to say yes. Here is a peek into my sketchbook from the past two days...

Sketch :: Day 3
Sketch :: Day 2

Charcoal Grey StudioIf my hands aren't busy drawing, painting, or doodling, you'll most likely find me knitting. When I first learned to knit, I was immediately fascinated by how simple and complicated it was at the same time. In my search for more information, I found a book about the social history of American knitting titled, most perfectly, No Idle Hands. No idle hands is how I think of myself sometimes.

Over the next few months I'll be keeping my hands busy, working on creating more artwork and new designs, and hopefully with more frequent updates on progress over here. To help make that possible, I plan to take a little break from setting up at craft shows. It'll also give me a chance to get to visit shows which is something I rarely get to do when I'm setting up my own work.

If you're in the DC area, today is Craft+Kisses, a valentine craft fair, organised by the lovely Moira of Bookish Lady. Sean and I won't be setting up, but there will be lots of awesome vendors there, and be sure to look out for Craft Mutiny friends!

I hope 2007 was a lovely year for all of you, and 2008 is even better.
