The Sisterhood of the Travelling Sketchbook

    I can’t but can do other things so have told Anne I can join in if she still want’s more people.

      She will! We’re hoping for maybe more people to join as we go along, once they see what other people have contributed. It’s less a Sketchbook than a Creative Notebook of Different Stuff, but that doesn’t exactly trip off the tongue…
