Yellowstone 6.....Sketch Books

Each evening in our Yellowstone Camp Site
the birds kept us entertained...

Clark's Nutcracker
(This was taken from a moving vehicle, so a bit blurry)


 On the last day of our trip we hiked out to
Morning Glory Pool:

Saying Good Bye to Yellowstone

 A few more pages from the Sketch Books:

Clam Shell or Hair Band Shapes surrounded by plumes.
Makes a great background filler design.

Same design as above except...
Left Page.....Leaf shapes instead of plumes.

Border Designs
Would also work as background fillers

  1. I just wanted to write and leave a note saying how much your blog has helped me with machine quilting. Your sketchbook is an inspiration, and has encouraged me to start doodling my own designs. Thank you so much for sharing your ideas!

  2. Hi Elley,

    Glad to know the sketch book posts are inspiring you. The more you practice on paper, the better you will get on the machine!
    My Best To You,
    LuAnn in Oregon

  3. Hi,
    I just found your blog and I am enjoying your sketch book so much. I'm on my way to buy a nice new book right now and exercise my hand.
    Thanks for the inspiration.
