Two books finished, bish bash bosh......

Book 1

Book 2
I have managed to finish all the artwork of the 2 books I have been working on and I gathered them all together to put them in order. It looks quite a lot of work, it is, but not rushed, just steady and thoughtful. Made the job quite enjoyable overall :)
 Then a day out to Harlow Carr Gardens, and Betty's Tea Room there (yummy)and a little look around the beautiful gift shop there.
Stunning giant pots of tulips

Beautiful and inspiring goodies in the shop.

Gives me a serious case of the wantsies....... :)


  1. Congratulations on finishing the illustrations for not 1, but 2 books! It must be very satisfying to see the work altogether. I think you should go back and treat yourself to something lovely from the gift shop!!

  2. Excellent you finished your art work! Slow and steady is much nicer than being in a hurry~ rushing doesn't make for good art! (or enjoying the process). Just last week a friend I chat with said she was going to Betty's!? I'd never heard of it, and now two of you there in a week! Funny small world! Love the little fox on the dish, gives me a little tickle of wantsies too! :)))))) Congrats on completion!

  3. Congrats on finishing two books! That's really quite a feat of endurance! Well done.

  4. Well done you for finishing your book projects, I think a celebration is in order!

  5. Betty's tea room reminds me of the Blithering in Victoria, British Columbia.

    Would love to have a closer look at your illustrations: Congratulations

  6. Such gorgeous illustrations!! Congratulations! And yes, I have the wantsies now too..wonderful items!

  7. A bed full of finished art says it all! I hope your fingers have recovered by now. Betty's tea= yummm. Wish we had one in Chicago!
