Yesterday was SerenTex day and you can read about it here. Above is a detail of a book Janine is making for the wedding of a niece. I must remember to ask her for a copy of the beautiful poem she used.
This is the messy part of my Egyptian project piece and it was such fun as you can imagine. I used all sorts of fabrics for this and glued them onto a piece of curtain lining using PVA.
I then painted over them in patches with lightly coloured Gesso. I will start to develop it shortly by handstitching in the evenings with a lot of machine embroidery. I will let you know how it goes(or not).
