This is the first one I did. The brief was to create a sketchbook/journal using fabric and to include words on the front cover in stitch. I am using it to sketch ideas for embroidery like the teacup and saucer I have drawn and then I made an embroidered piece using an old traycloth, lace and fabric.
I made another little book for a dear friend of mine. Hope she likes it.
My second class was to use the inside of old envelopes to draw on and then collage into your own sketchbook. I made a book out of some envelopes first.
In it I am sticking pieces of textile art and postcards of other artists work. I will be adding drawings of my own and some embroidery pieces.
So even though I am not working on my embroidery I am sticking with the theme. I seem to have a problem with going off at a tangent all the time.
Have a look at some more desks now and see what work others are doing.
