She's a little minx!

I had every intention of working on Chakra Fae this week, and even started with a few stitches, but it turns out that Clara is a little minx. She started calling to me and I just couldn't resist. This is now all the black on the first page, and I'm very excited! I've been wanting to work on a Hannah Lynn chart for ages, because I love the idea of doing the outline and then colouring her in, and she's just as gorgeous and much fun as I was hoping, but I am now going to get back to Chakra Fae from when I picked her up last week.
For those of you in the UK who had an uber long weekend last weekend last weekend, I hope you had a good time. Mine was pretty manic. Dad's local canal (I'm feeling very guilty because I can't remember what it's called), had restored part of the canal and they'd organised a joint jubilee/it's just been opened celebration. And for something that was organised by amateurs, it was absolutely mahoosive! I was helping my dad's fiance out on her stall and Ben was running on the stage, it was brilliant fun, but basically meant that we got up, went to the site, came home, had a drink, went to bed, got up, went to the site... so I went back to work this week for a break. However, I was only back for two days, I'm off again today as we're heading to Chester for a cousins wedding.

I just started Clara too, also my first Hannah Lynn design and like you I loved the idea of doing the black outline then colouring it in! She's going really well, you're making great progress!

Had a nice, but quiet long weekend, sounds like you had a nice time :)

Enjoy yourself at the wedding!

The black outlines first scare the living crap out of me! But I am always in awe of people who can do it!! Good luck!
