Stairs are not my friend, and new a drawing

So far, I’m a little behind on a lot of things I’d planned on doing. Because… *blushes* on August 23rd, I missed the last step leaving my 2nd floor apartment, and sprained my foot/ankle. Ouch! Fortunately, I’m almost healed, and I cannot wait to get back to walking and my usual fitness routine. I’m especially looking forward to hiking once cooler weather sets in!

I have not been sewing, and I desperately need to get that back on track. I have an event I’m hoping to attend in mid-November, and I’m a little nervous about some of the things I need to make. My husband will not be dressing up since his costume is still not finished. It would just be too much for me to deal with. There will be other times.

I do have a problem, though. I can’t seem to stop sketching dwarves! I think the pile of sketches is building up too quickly (including the one I’d started the day I had my accident with the last step), but I keep starting new ones. It’s just so much fun to come up with ideas, and it’s a little easier on me to draw than it is to move furniture to get to sewing supplies, or kneel on the floor to cut out fabric.

At least I do have a new finished drawing to share! I sketched it when I was just starting to walk without crutches, wanting to see if I could handle sitting at my art table. I kept playing with it and finished inking it today! Please check out the full-sized image on deviantART, along with other details about how I drew it.

About Cynthia Griffith

I have way too many interests and hobbies, and continually cycle through them -- paying attention to some, while others wait for when I can get around to them again. My main interests are sewing and costuming (I enjoy historical clothing, such as 18th and 19th century, as well as fantasy costumes like elves and hopefully someday even dwarves), as well as getting back to art by drawing fan art of Thorin Oakenshield and Company. My husband Christopher and I spend a lot of time together, enjoying the outdoors and shared hobbies such as juggling. This blog and website is my way to share what I'm up to with friends and family.

  1. I’m glad you’re on the mend! I’ve hated seeing you down and not able to zip around. So much of your character, as weird as it may sound, is in the energy of your stride. It carries over to other things, and I’ve hated seeing you having a hard time getting around. And yet, during that time, you’ve still created some great stuff!

    Here’s to getting your stride back: in reality, and figuratively!

  2. Yes, it’s been driving me crazy. I don’t like feeling like I’m incapable of getting around or doing things I’m used to doing. I don’t like being waited on or needing to be watched (it was so difficult moving around this small place with crutches). And I hate missing out on fitness!

    So I agree! Time to get moving again — back to normal! 😉
