Listen To Her Heart

For those of you who wanted to see the finished felting flippers - here they are after two washes.  They kind of fit, and I'm not sure whether to give them another go in the washing machine or if that will turn out to be a felt-too-far.  What d'ya reckon?  Then I've just got to knit little flowers to stitch on them.
I inadvertently stayed up until 2.45 this morning.  I started watching a Peter Bogdanovich film about Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, which started at 10.45pm last night.  What I didn't realise was that it went on for FOUR hours (with no ad breaks).  I did really enjoy it though, and fortunately I didn't have to get up early today.  While I was watching/listening, I did a couple of sketches - although it's taken longer to scan them and adjust the brightness/contrast to make them visible on here, than it did to draw them.  Maybe it's best to use pen rather than pencil.  Anyway, both on a heart-shaped theme.

I don't know about you, but three nights spent watching 'Stargazing Live' with the lovely, smiley Professor Brian Cox. (the one with the hair, and the enthusiasm of a bouncy puppy) and there I am, searching on ebay for a telescope.  Except that I think I'll delay that until the weather improves - not sure I really want to stand out in the garden in the middle of the night with icicles hanging off my nose.  But maybe my next sketchbook work should be star,  instead of heart, inspired.
Listen To Her Heart - Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers


  1. Oh I'm glad I didn't start watching that film then I'd never have got up today. We are also weighing up the telescope options again after watching Stargazig, that chap makes it so interesting. Just can't imagine him in a band though :-)

  2. You're a bit good at this drawing lark! My feet look just like that at the moment (except I've got flowers!)

  3. Your slippers look really good ,cant wait to see them with flowers ,A blogfriend lived near Tom Petty's Mum ,and met him when he came to Brighton to see her ,I think she is still in touch Jan xx

  4. Love those slippers! Will check back to see what you do with them.
    As we drove back from footy yesterday we heard
    the radio report from Leyton Orient.
    Great stuff!!

  5. great sketches!! and I think the slippers look brilliant but you could put them through the wash again...what's the worst that can happen????

  6. Lovely slippers, you must put the flowers on though to take them to a new level of lovelyness.
