What's your name. . .

Good morning everyone. Here is another little character that popped onto my pages this week. Boy, Rabbit, Granny Minch (from my previous posts) and Miss here are somehow tied together. There is a story there that I can't quite  get hold of. It's so FRUSTRATING...grrr! It's keeping me awake at night. I don't even know their names yet.  
The illustrations for my first story are in progress.  My deadline to have them done is end of February. Then I will send them off and say lots of prayers and cross my fingers and toes that a publisher loves it enough to publish. I'll reveal the characters to you then. Not quite ready to step out of the shadows yet.
I have the bones of a new story and new characters that I'm excited about and can't wait to get started on. There are just not enough hours in my day to fit everything in. Hope you all have a good Sunday Sketches time... :) x
