Day 7 – Periodic Table
Derivative of Colour Picker – An Element Picker
Last year I got to know about icad – Index Card A Day – at Daisy Yellow, but it was toward the very end of the event. So I decided to not bother joining it at the last moment. This year, however, I was ready to jump start my drawing, which I had been missing very dearly. Since the 1st of June I made a commitment to draw one index card per day. This set is from my first week.
Day 6 – Taxi
They need to go home too!
Day 5 – Owl
Want to play in the rain with me?
Day – 4 Mailbox
From the Edwardian Era, for one of my favourite authors, P. G. Wodehouse
Day 3 – Map
Milky Way, in case you were going that way
Day 2 – Carnival
The book Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury has haunted my dreams for a very long time, but no more.
Day 1 – Chevron
I love to swim in the summer; sunlight reflecting off water is one my favourite sights.
The event runs until July 31st, that makes a total of 61 cards. You can find out more about it at the Daisy Yellow website in case you are inclined to join in. It should be a lot of fun for kids too. I am really loving it so far and I am very happy with my progress. I hope you enjoyed the little show and tell. I will share more cards as I draw along.
I have one little sewing note to mention. Since I love coffee and tea so much, cafe stops are a must for me while travelling. Those are also the best places to try out local food and watch life happening around me. That thought initiated the Sidewalk Cafe quilt pattern. I made mine with British Motor Racing colours and used the address of my all-time favourite fictional detective as the name of the cafe.
I had fun making these alternate versions. Wouldn’t it be nice to make a cafe quilt block each for different places and make a table runner or a wall hanging? I wish I had more time to create, don’t you?!!
