Coffee break

I am having such a messy, but creative, day.
A deadline looming, like Monday, to create an
'Artist's Book' in concertina form.  Well on the 
way now,  a couple more pages to complete.
All a bit of a challenge - it involves painted/
printed papers, repurposed fabric, hand and
machine stitching, plus a whole load of glue.

I can share the front page

This is what the fabric looked like before painted with
bronze powders.

A fragment of Indian machine embroidery on organza.
Really faded and very tatty.   Now it looks quite yummy.

By way of distraction therapy, I also have bundles of
cotton yarn dyed and now batching for a couple
of hours.

Time to engage brain and tackle the last two pages.
