Sunday Showcase – meet Molly

I’ve had a tough week with the pain in my hip, and had to have a cortisone injection directly into the painful area which has left me in more pain and meant going back onto the stronger painkillers.

I haven’t really done any illustration other than my sketchbook project for a while, and certainly not since my operation so I was a bit rusty when attempting yesterday’s sketches. I got an e-mail from another Vix at VixenUK who I met on Flickr through the Picture This competition about a poem from a lady… Read more »

Yay, it’s the weekend which I imagine is more exciting to some than myself as at the moment everyday seems the same, but it does mean that I get to spend more time with my fab husband, and get more visits from friends. Today’s Luulla picks are from art and photography as the weekend often… Read more »
