The Nights Draw In…

5 Dec


More digital kitty. It’s nice drawing the curtains on the dark as we rapidly approach the longest night, it’s dark around teatime now. Sparta Puss likes hanging out with us, dozing on her pouffé with a crocheted blanket. It’s an easy option to scribble her while she snoozes. I’m using my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet with a free app called Markers.

Patchwork Blanket

20 Oct


(Not so) Little Nephew is having a sleepover this evening so I scribbled him as he watched Gogglebox, tucked under a crocheted patchwork blanket made my Mam-inLaw. He’s growing so fast, he’s now taller than me by a good few inches. I’ve been drawing him since he was a baby, it’s nice to have that record of him growing up. I used my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet with a free Markers app.

Aunty Nin’s Antimacassar

12 Jan


My dear Aunty Nin loved to crochet and she made me some antimacassars. I’ve had them for decades and they’re still going strong. I don’t need to use them on the backs of the chairs as men don’t wear macassar any more so I drape them over the chair seats to protect them from a more modern menace, the cats, who think they have a divine right to sleep anywhere they like. There’s Sparta, the psychokitty, sprawled on one, glaring at me balefully as I scribbled.
