Colour Pencils

Been wanting to use some colour pencils that need sharpening for a while. They are chunkier than the standard size, I had a large size pencil sharpener for them but it got broken when the bag it was in got caught in my bicycle wheel when I was cycling to a yoga lesson through Toyama park and I hadn’t got around to getting a new one. This morning while removing flash cards from a yoga anatomy colouring book I suddenly and joyfully realized I could sharpen them with Dan’s penknife!

This pose is Janu Sirsasana – head to knee pose – a forward bend to help gently look forward to the coming year, yet still holding 2020 – a year that has stretched many of us beyond what we can bear.

All the Clothes You Own…

Made pictures of all the clothes I have – thought it might help me get a big picture of what is there and help me decide which ones to keep!


If you want to try it, you just need:

  • Some paper
  • Pen or pencil
  • Watercolor paint (or coloured pens, pencils etc.)
  • All your clothes (can draw them in batches if lots of them)

I used loose paper, rather than a notebook as easier to lay them all out and see them together. Noticed I have a lot more “tops” than “bottoms” 😊
