What a lovely talent to have. Always wanted to be able to draw but it's hard enough drawing breath these days... ;)

Lovely bears, they will be a real comfort to the children who get them.  Well done you!

The cat is amazing Maywalk and the charity must be so pleased with the bears.  How lovely that she can still do all these things and is so wonderful at it.

I had an aunt Maywalk, no longer with us sadly, who had always painted so we got hand painted Christmas cards, etc.  Her main area was painting on china and she was still teaching small groups at home until she was 92.  I think it would be wonderful if we could all look forward to such a fulfilling old age.

I am absolutely convinced that such hobbies keep you sane and your brain active and the craft community in general is very sharing - very little one-upmanship and a lot of confidence building goes on.

Hello Maywalk,
some time ago I posted a  story of an  elderly lady who was smartly dressed spoke very well and was as bright as a button, she skyped,  emailed, and did a number of other things the way this lady spoke very well educated I thought in her earlier life she most likely was a company secretary very able and very confident


she was up on modern day life and worldly affairs that   many of us get involved with  particularly on say politics she was a formidable lady and extremely interesting to talk to very articulate , a lovely lady ,


she was 102 years old and walked without a stick  smartly dressed with it ,
no doubt there are some incredible and amazing ladies and even men who are very knowledgeable and who are
interested in just about everything that happens today,

the picture and drawings you have shown , show just how much  talented that lady you know has very very clever and amazing drawings too, simply incredible ,these people encourage others that age is no barrier ,
