Drawings, chocolates and birds

I've drawn these pictures after watching the latest video on Linda Kemshall's "Design Matters TV".  I'm not very good at drawing and they make it look so easy. I've used water colour paper and water colour pencils for these. I guess I'll just have to keep practicing. By the way, its a weed I picked from a hedge along my road. It's about to burst another leaf, or a least it was until I picked it. I cheated with the pear, it is from a picture rather than the real thing
 And now for something completely different. Very low fat had made sweeties. I am making these for my chocolate quilt which I hope to have ready for the International Quilt Festival of Ireland next year. I used a  Clover Round Large Yo-Yo Maker  for these beauties and then decorated  them after stuffing.

Here is my latest Bird. He is made from my hand dyed fabrics. Great way to use up scraps. I put some berries  in his beak for added interest.
