Sunday Sketches - ...It's Time for a Picnic

It's a beautiful June day here, and we've got plans to sit
outside under our willow tree and have a picnic
...just like Madeline the Mouse...

What are you up to on this gorgeous June day?

It's also time for Sunday Sketches! This is a sketch of something I am working on...
I plan on adding a friend for Madeline and some more goodies....
Come join the fun over at The Blue Chair Diary with Sophia and the gang, grab a pencil and a sketchbook and I will meet you there!

Love this sketch, Madeline looks so feminine. Enjoy your picnic, we finally have a nice day again today and maybe a BBQ would be in order.

Madeline is her usual cute self. Having a picnic sounds like a great idea, if the thunder clouds ever go away that is. Have a sunny Sunday. Hugs

Wanda said...

Well I'm taking Madeline's advice, and inviting my daughter's family over for a picnic in our back yard.

Apple pie in the oven, and turkey breast ready to go in when the pie comes out.

If I want to feel good, have a lift, and a smile... I come and visit you and Madeline. Love the love that comes from your drawings.

Very cute Heather! I love it as I do all of your illustrations. Thanks for commenting on my blog...yes, I was in New York during that heat wave. The only drawback in an otherwise fantastic day. I often come to New York with my hubby--for lunch. He works at Usairways and the shuttle goes back and forth to NYC every hour and we fly free. A simple half hour flight, to have some of the best pizza in the world!! Next time we have to meet up!!! :-)

Happy Sunday Sketches! Madeline is adorable, as always. ^.^

Your plans sound lovely. We've been enjoying the breeze through the open windows and are getting ready to indulge in some cocktails.

Joey said...

My word, you are gifted! I would give anything to have a a box of cards with your sketches...

Do you have an Etsy account?

You take me to another land... fantasy, which is the best place to be.

Oh, yes! Madeline, cute as ever, has the right idea. I would love to have a picnic...if only the rain would go away.

EVA said...

What a wonderful way for you and Madeline to spend the day! Me? Weeding, edging, cleaning and more weeding.... but I am making progress!

Betsy said...

I don't remember the last time I was on a picnic! I'm going to have to do something about that real soon! :)

Betsy said...
