This is it – the finale to the Drawing Project – well at least for the time being!
I am inviting you to take part in the Distant Stitch Drawing Competition – with lovely prizes -

This competition is open to any one who is a non-professional artist, whether you are a Distant Stitch student or not.
There will be three jurors – Jan Evans (Distant Summer School tutor), Viv White (Distant Stitch Creative Sketchbooks tutor) and myself, Sian Martin.
After judging, a selection of the submitted drawings will be posted on a special gallery on the Distant Stitch website along with links to your blog.
The title or theme is “Looking Into”.
A drawer containing ‘things’ could perhaps come under this title. I have a large cupboard of tiny drawers, rescued from a closing chemist’s shop. Peeling the tatty sticky labels off the outsides and scrubbing off years of grime revealed the original painted labels in gold. So now you can see what I keep in my ‘opium turc’ drawer! Any chemists out there who can tell me what ‘r:helleb:a:p’ is please?
What else could you ‘look into’? For all the details and hints on how to get started take a look at the Distant Stitch website.
