rusty stuff

Some rusty stuff today - I have made quite a number of different 'fabrics' and woven and patched some - this above is the first page for a new little book. A lot more work to come of course. L still like this cutting, weaving and reconstituting.
This is a side track while I was playing but it is inspired by my trip to the yacht club to take lots of photos of the rust and poles etc. The blue in my scan is much too blue - but you get the picture.

Tonight we are off to eat at Koinonia with Bruce and Kazuko - New Year's Day is big in Japan and Kazuko will be wearing her kimono. I will take the camera.

I love you little book pieces. Hope you had a wonderful New Year meal, and that you are not melting in the heat - your dry heat is better than our humidity though! the air is like soup here today. Cheers, Robin

I love the woven pieces for your next book - such a simple idea but so effective in the right hands! What a super water lily, no wonder you are pleased with it. Good to know the next Cloth Paper Scissors is not far away! Fantastic fireworks from Sydney Harbour - they made the front page of today's Daily Telegraph. Happy New Year, Heather.
