Sketchbook Tuesday - Closure

One of my sketches from last week, done of our dogs as they often are, lounging nearby while I work. Just some lines scribbled on the page, trying to get the peaceful devotion in their shapes. Scribbled lines attempting some sense of closure in order to become shapes.
And here is my finished crochet bag! (sorry for the poor photo, we haven't had much light here lately)I am so pleased that I not only learned to change colors but also crochet in the round! Thanks Jennifer! All I need do now is sew in a lining, which I have all ready to go. And I want to fashion some sort of closure for the top. Maybe a button with a loop?

Love the sketch and the curved writing ties both puppies together. Lovely work, Ann. I also adore that hobo style bag. You might also consider a zipper closure? Just a thought out loud. Pay no attention to that (wo)man behind the curtain...

Nice sketch. The peacefulness of their slumber really comes thru in just your few scribbled lines. Love your commentary.

Drawings of dogs always warm my heart, and this is no exception. And, your bag is just lovely - one of a kind! nancy

Love the sketch of the dogs :)
The bag is beautiful too. Totally reminds me of the days my mom would spend hours and hours crochet... and I would fall asleep on her lap tired from playing with my toys... I was 3-5 years old

You captured the peacefulness of the dogs napping well.

Oh Ann, I LOVE your bag!! You did a great job! Love the color choices! I'm getting together some photos of projects folks have made from my patterns and I'd love to include this photo...would you mind if I shared it in a post? If so, maybe you could send me the pic via email...Again, thanks for sharing it in your blog. And I love the sweet sketches of your dog:)

Wonderful sketches! And the bag is just lovely. Goodness knows, I don't need another hobby, but this bag does make it tempting!

Lovely sketch, it really gives the sense of peaceful doggie snoozin'. The bag looks great, so cheerful!

Ann said...

Thanks everyone!

Alex, that is so sweet, what a lovely memory. These days I mostly crochet while Kiddo does her lessons. I wonder what kind of memory that will form for her?

Your bag turned out great! You could do a loop or even a flap to go over a large button.
