Apparently I managed a creative afternoon as well as the morning, hence the double posts!
I finished the embroidery on my pears:
We also had an enjoyable couple of hours at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, looking around the Pre-Raphaelite and Staffordshire Horde galleries.
I found a couple of pieces that inspired me, so sketched a couple of quick drawings to remind me, with the potential for them to become stamps or stencils later.
There were many lovely patterns in the Staffordshire Horde gallery, including a couple of large samples of metalwork for people to touch, so I took rubbings of them.
