-----I have been doing something.
At the end of September is the Embroiderers Guild annual exhibition and I have been busy finishing off all the bits and pieces that I have entered into it.
Now you won't find any wonderful framed Cross Stitched pieces from me or beautiful Hardanger table pieces -no siree.
We are lucky at our Guild because we have groups like the Paper Arts Group that create amazing mixed media pieces which can be entered in the exhibition as long as there is some form of stitching on them-either by hand or machine.
Here is one of the pieces that I have entered.
It is inspired by an article in issue 12 of Cloth Paper Scissors by Beryl Taylor.
I have used hand made paper for the base of each page.
Each page has a motif made of 3 different hand made papers and several different pieces of lace plus a button and a bead.
Each motif has stitching on it and each is different.
There is running stitch also along the top of each page.
I have made beads from the same hand made paper that is the base-the bigger ones are on top of the support poles and the smaller ones which form the tassels that hang off the poles.
I apologise for making the photos too small but if you click on them then they will enlarge.
