Calligraphy doodling

I had a couple of minutes of free time on Tuesday to do some calligraphy practice. I tell you what, September for a rabid baseball fan can be so busy. Especially when you insist on going a full weekend of games. More on that later if I can get my act together...
I'm trying to get a little better with this new nib I purchased. I need to spend some time working on my form instead of just free styling all the time. I know that Miss Susan likes to see my every calligraphy creation so I hope this keeps my DJ Jazzy happy for a few minutes.
This weekend finds me flying to New York to catch the 7th to last game ever at Yankee Stadium on Monday between the Yanks and the Chicago White Sox (wrong colored Sox for this fan's taste, but you can't get everything you want). It's overwhelming enough to know I'll be attending the wake of the cathedral of baseball, especially in a down year for the Bronx Bombers. But alas, I've wandered away from the strict confines of my craft blog to boast about my good baseball fortune. The reason I bring this up is that it seems that I won't be getting a chance to do too much crafting over the weekend. I'll see if I can get something done...


  1. Ah, I love it. And to think these same calligraphy doodles may just be made at my own kitchen table in a scant two months!

  2. Speaking of things somewhat unrelated to crafting, I went to my old apartment yesterday to pick up my mail...and there was a fabulous treat awaiting me! Now I'm the proud owner of two Hilary Mix CDs! And I love them! Have fun in NYC. I'm happy you'll be on my side of the country and away from rain and wind that Ike might blow Dallas' way.
