Strings of beads, line drawing for Illustration Friday. These are beads that I've collected over the years from broken necklaces - some silver, some glass, I keep thinking I'll re-string them one day but I never do . . . Click on image for a better view.

My drawing of petit fours for the theme of sugary on Illustration Friday this week. I love the colours and shapes of these little cakes when they are made well, the're like individual works of art.

More squash

This is the first drawing of the squash I did that led on to the 'packed' illustration.
I've now found out more about growing these from seed - they are known for being promiscuous! Apparently I should pollinate them by hand if I want to retain the variety as they can cross-pollinate, then I would need to put an elastic band on the top of the flower to stop any insects crawling inside. Sounds like a bit of a palaver to me. I haven't had any problems before and I rather liked the shock of all the strange shapes growing. We tried some for lunch yesterday, they were yummy and, as we're still here, not poisonous!
