Although it was a busy day, I took my new journal with me in case I had a chance to start on its fresh pages. And luckily, while waiting for my lunch to come to the table, I had just enough time to sketch a page, a sort of stylized figure from maybe the 1960's, a bit vintage like the new-found treasures we'll be looking for next week. The lighting wasn't great, and all I had was my pencil. No color yet. But I'm looking forward to a great day next Friday shopping with new and old friends in Leesburg. I'm sure we'll have many colorful hours that I'll want to note. Maybe I can even persuade each of these lovely women to add a page for me. Wouldn't that be a great memory!
Edit: I finally remembered where I had seen the sewing pattern pose that prompted this sketch. It's pictured on Kari Ramstrom's Year of Color blog, as a Moleskine journal cover made by Julie Thompson. You can see Julie's cute journal here.
