Working on paper, white cartridge high quality watercolour paper. I made this sketch ages ago along with other similar doodles. They have been lurking..... my original intention was to create large, embroidered wall panels from them. Well I still can if I want but for now they are inspiring small works on paper and cloth. It's the paper I am showing here, the cloth is in progress.
This paper has been stitched and pricked...after these pictures were taken yesterday it had an edge added along one side so it has also been adorned with lacy embellishment. I am now in the process of creating the cloth part....which will alter this significantly......I do hope you like it.
I know you are aware that I have a huge task ongoing which I should be getting on with. A collection of thirty embroidered pieces, 12.5 x 12. 5 inch/32 x 32 cm square. It is ongoing, I plan to do it, I plan to finish it but......it is a huge undertaking and I always knew it would take a while, maybe six months. In the meantime I was in need of a little diversion, hence the fiddling with paper.
Before I go....... and I must go, there is dusting to do, a little reminder. If you want buttons then you need to comment here, if you are looking for my recently mounted pieces for your sketchbook, they now live here. Well nine of them do, two of them moved out yesterday!!
