Amazing drawing Rita.  I love the tea bag and little tray.  You blow me away with the little extras and super persistent approach.  It is clear that you are in this to get the very most you can out of it.  It is a joy for the rest of us. :yippee:
Keep it up Rita.  Eager to see the next one.

Rita, I just love the way you fancy up your drawings!  You're very creative and you inspire all of us.   :flowers:

I have a little tea bag tray just like that one in Delft Blue with a windmill on it. 
Now where's yours  :confused:   :2funny:  You're not finished with your drawing yet.   :2funny:

I enjoyed visiting the Delft Blue factory when we were in Holland three years ago.

Wow Rita, your mug is awesome!  O0

Bravo :clap: :clap:

You are such an inspiration.  I think I'm going to slow down and take more time to get it everything just right after seeing your work.  Actually I think I'm going to end up doing most of my drawing on the weekends.  The last two days full time at work have been very tiring and the physio really put me through my paces today. Still have a ways to go before I can throw my crutch away  :( Anyway, its been really nice to read all your posts and get inspiration to keep going.

Your persistence certainly paid off, it's an awesome drawing Rita  :heeha:

Why you battled with the tray is because it is a bowl. You need to get those angles 100% or it will look wonky. Your angles are great - that took very close observation so I am on :cloud9:

Thank you Nolan, :flowers: for your encouraging comment, I'm happy that my little tray did come out fine.  :smitten: It was indeed a struggle to get the angles good, and I had to start all over many times, but I'm happy that I did, it looks good and shiny.

Hi everyone :wave: 

I've just finished my teddybear, and I loved it to do. I still find hatching difficult, and I had to start all over again a few times, but I'm happy with the final drawing.  :smitten: The little teddybear with her blanket is handmade by myself. She's only 6,5 cm high and one of the smaller bears I've made. The smallest one was only 3 cm and was a present for a friend.


I loved the idea to put her in front of the hatched teddybear, and draw her just on the right spot, leaning against the foot of her big brother. Hatching her was a little scarry because she is so tiny, but I love how it turned out. :smitten:

 :cheering: :cheering: :cheering: Rita.  As usually, you show that you are mega multi-talented.  Adorable little stuffed bear that you made and really excellent hatching on your teddies.  Creative thought there.  Keep up the wonderful work

 :blush: :cloud9: Wow!!!  :blush:

Lynn, Lillian and Natalie, Thank you so very, very much, for your loving, appreciative and encouraging comments. I'm very grateful for your support in my coal to improve my drawing skills :flowers: :flowers:

It's really much appreciated and it's a real boost to go on and rewarding the struggle and problems that are  :flight: by.
It was soo much fun, not only to hatchNolan's cute teddybear, but trying to draw that little teddy with her blanky was a challange and fun. She looks so sweet amongst my other bears and I thought she deserved a spot on a drawing. It was the first time I draw one of my bears, normaly I'll make photo's when they are finished. So, maybe I'll give it a go with the others too.

Your great comments give me the courage to try more than I ever thougt I would dare,  :thankyou:  :hug: :thankyou: .

Rita, you put me to shame doing all those wheels and charts.   :blush:

I'm so negligent where that's concerned.  I should get right down to the nitty-gritty.

I'm taking a color theory course at the college in October.  Hopefully that will force me to be doing what I should be doing.
