Online classes at Craftsy

I have signed up for a couple of online classes at Craftsy. If you haven't
come across this website before, I recommend having a look.
There are online classes available in all sorts of creative pursuits.
So many different subjects to choose from! Embroidery, quilting,
sewing, yarn and fibre arts, art and photography among others!
The prices are very reasonable, and the classes are clear and easy 
to follow.It is like having a personal tutorial.

I am doing Embroidering Texture and Dimension by Hand with Sue 

and Bead Embroidery with Myra Wood

Autumn/Fall Colouring Pages by Alisa Burke

Colouring books for adults are becoming increasingly popular.
There are some artists who sell bundles of colouring pages on
their websites. I liked the ones by Alisa Burke, an American 
artist in Portland, Oregon. Here is a link to the page on her 
I have started to colour in one of her free downloadable
colouring sheets to try it out, and I thought it was fun,
and I love her drawings. It is also fun to use my new Sharpies!
It is for the times when I get into the studio and want to do
something creative to kick-start my ideas.
