As there seems to be quite a bit of artistic talent around here, I thought I would start a pencil sketch section .....

That odd one is her trick marble for going around corners. She probably also picks bits off cricket balls.

Who can you trust? Standards are falling all round us, very worrying.

Sorry one of them was a fish..or possibly a shell... I do so love the sea..almost more than I love marbles, I have quite a lot of them, and keep buying them for my grandsons, along with marble runs etc, don't think they have quite the same obsession, but never mind. I even took a pilgrimmage to the marble museum last time I was in Devon..

my nans mad about marbles too belle, shes been to the museum in devon and came home with loads of them, some are really colourful and she deplays them in a huge glass tube, the best thing about my nan is her AGA as shes always cooking cakes and bringing them round for me to eat!! good ole nan

A woman after my own heart, though my cake baking isn't good..I do make lots of homemade soup though. The skill which impressed my grandsons most was my ability to peel an apple without letting the skin break...it's amazing what tricks us nans have up our sleeves!
My marbles are displayed in a glass terrarium, by the window to catch the light.

Coming on nicely, it looks like an old fashioned cocker spaniel, i think they had broader heads.

Trust your eye Conor and stop worrying. The drawing is fine and coming on well. Working strains of dogs are bred for performance and not stupid Cruft type conformation 'standards' and so tend to have broader heds and bigger brain pans. Have a look at a working labrador and you'll find the same thing.
