Sparrow - WIP 3

Remember back in December when I started the drawing of a sparrow for my Dad's Christmas present? Well, as you may have guessed, I never finished it. Nowhere near!
But now I am determined to get it done in time for his birthday, which is in September. Hopefully plenty of time!
I did a little last night, and here is the latest photo. I don't know why I'm struggling so much with this. Maybe it's because it's on coloured paper and the paper is almost the same colour as the bird?

English Mastiff - Sketch WIP

Just a little something to try and get back into drawing. The reference photo is so eautiful but the shadows are so dark I can't for the life of me figure out what's going on with his right eye! I have no idea how to draw it!!!

Baby Blanket Finally Finished!!

I am so very pleased with how this came out! After all the hard work and hours that went into it, I think it's really pretty, practical and cuddly. I can't wait to take it to my brother-in-law and his girlfriend as a present in a few month's time. Let's hope their baby-to-be enjoys it!

The pattern for the blanket is here, and the ruffle edging was a simple:
Row 1 - sc in each st
Row 2 - 2dc in each sc
Row 3 - dc in each dc
