an artful journey, a wee book cover and some really yummy stuff
This is the book cover I have made from the stitching I showed last blog. I stitched rows of plain stitch and then a leaf pattern on each row and over the top I used a large leaf pattern which one of my machines has. the inside cover is a flimsies and velvet combo. just about to make the pages using khadi paper and the gelli plate - there is a parcel of new stamps on the kitchen bench not yet opened because I opened the big bag first
Another photo of what I tipped out onto the bench. I say Kimberley Dreaming because for anyone interested, I have started a new facebook page - An Artful Journey - the link is on the right - I am plotting my arty story in themes - April is Kimberley Dreaming month and while some have been seen before, it keeps them together and helps me sort out where I am going. Once I choose my hank, I shall iron it and then decide what next. Some have quite textured sari fabric and some even have the odd jewel hidden in (or rather sewn in)
Rugby - well the Hurricanes lost but they are still doing okay having so many young players - the chiefs won - well played - and even better for the loyal fans who attend every game - the Force beat the Reds very convincingly. At last. Looking forward to the Chiefs vs the Force this Friday. Many things to be done before then though.
