Sketchbook challenge

For a long time, I have known I really should be spending more time in my sketchbooks, my use of them tends to be very erratic, I can spend many hours in them one week and then not open them for a couple of weeks, very naughty! ๐Ÿ™‚

To remedy my lackadaisical attitude I signed up to the 2018 sketchbook challenge with Magenta Sky, although it started in January you can start it whenever you like, if you would like to play along, you can sign up to receive daily prompts here.

Here are the first few days of my challenge, I will continue to post them periodically on here but if you want to follow them in real time I will be posting daily on Instagram (Teriberrytextiles) and Facebook (

Day 1: Pattern



Day 2: Everyday object


Day 3: Leaves




Day 4: Circles

Day5: Straight lines and angles





Day 6: Fruit and Veg

      Thanks Ruth, and thank you for all the likes on Instagram too ๐Ÿ™‚ You are so right, some days it is easy to find 30 min to doodle in my sketchbook, others it is a real struggle. I am hoping that doing this for a month will get me into a habit of using it more and there has already been a progression from the sketchbook into felt – today I have been creating some wall hangings from the black and white optical illusions from day 5.
