Hi my name is Lynn Naughton and I love sharing my sewing projects. I make quilts, mixed media wall hangings and all kinds of items for my home. I teach patchwork in my studio where new students will also have access to beautiful fabrics and sewing notions.

I am always taking photo's of birds in my garden to try and capture an interesting pose. Waiting for them to fly off, so I can get them in flight. So far the best poses are when they are still. I would love to do a sketch book page using the bird images. As I have never taken a class in drawing or painting I can always trace the shape first. I love the strength in his beak, unfortunately his eye is not clear.
Here is a page I created using a photo copy of a piece of fabric I have with some cows in a field of poppies. On the left I have cut out the head of a poppy and painted the leaves and painted some more poppies to the bottom of the cow page. I have not done many sketch book pages so I hope these will improve with practice
