I’m still having fun conjouring happy memories as I sketch my way through Jodie’s stuffed animal collection. This time I was reminded of a time before Jodie was born.
If one could bottle, for sale, the energy of mothers preparing the nest for a baby we could stop burning fossil fuels. But once the room was set up, Chantal was just getting started. She began making clothes and stuffed animals. Here’s one of them, a cat. The ‘real’ one has a very complex pattern of flowers all over it but I didn’t have the patience to draw that. I wanted to finish the sketch in my lifetime.
