Queen Of Everything


I am being neglectful of my everyday drawing and blogging, I know, but I have had some sort of bug for the last few days which has made me feel completely washed out. Anyway, last night I slept for eleven hours and today I feel much improved. Might even get a bit of work done!

I am still having a ball making these fabric covered books and I have so much quilting cotton that I could probably keep making them until I'm 90. This one features some Klimt-inspired designs which have metallic gold accents and they look very sumptuous paired with large florals and yellows. The title just seemed appropriate somehow. It's currently available in my shop.

I've also just started reading What do I do when I want to do everything? by Barbara Sher. I was attracted to it when I saw it on the library shelf as I am one of those people who wants to do everything and frequently ends up doing nothing because I just can't choose. Well, Ms Sher promises some insights and ways of dealing with this so I thought I'd give it a go. I'll let you know more when I've read further.
