152:365 It's fair to say I didn't draw this today. But all the same it's still a cute pic of little Gracie. From a number of years ago when she was slim and perky and still alive. And it's a bit of a favourite for both of us.

151:365 Irridescent succulent flower that I brought up with me from Coogee to the Mountains. Reminds me of my lovely semi tropical friend Leesa who always has one in a tiny glass jar in the bathroom when ever I visit her in Brisbane.

150:365 Today I'm running a workshop where we go out looking for things like this amazing orange and black and olive green coloured palm seed head and then turn what we find into a prototype screen print. I forgot to bring my watercolours with me so this drawing stays in black and white but the day ahead will be full of colour. #lookdrawprint #workshop #patersonadrawingaday

147:365 A local flowering heath bush and I've been told the name but can't remember. And I'm in a bit of a rush to pack up and head into town so the sketch isn't as lovely as it could be but that's ok because it was nice sitting in the sunshine having a go.

I've been sewing with an entry level domestic Brother sewing machine for quite a few years now and it's been pretty good considering what I've asked of it. But now I think it's time for an upgrade. It just can't quite get through my bundles any more. Any suggestions on what I should upgrade to? Nothing fancy mind. I only need to do wonky lines and thick layers.
