a peak inside the sketchbook . . .

I'm participating in the Sketchbook Project 2012.  Check it out here for details on how you can participe; it's easy and fun.  Last year I made a book of fabric and thread sketches. 

This year I'm using pencils, pens, markers, crayons and water color pencils.  
 Spring through summer seems to be the time for sitting, waiting, and watching outside, so I want to only use tools I can take in my travel bag.

I've been working along on my book when I'm not at home quilting.
This page accidentally got wet on the go, but I wasn't bothered by it-I just stuck a layer of tissue on it, traced over and I'm leaving it in.  Maybe I'll go back over with some other color, maybe not.

When you get your book you can use it as is, or rebind it.  Mine is rebound, I added a few different weight papers and made some fold out pages.
Go sign up now and submit your book by January31, 2012.  In April the books will begin to tour and this year they will go around the globe!
