Brown paper and Stitch
Another experiment - working with recycled material. Inspired by my workshop at the end of last summer with Frances Pickering I wanted to make a simple book using paint and stitch. This little prototype is made entirely fr...

Deer, Roe deer, Roe deer....
Deer have been much in my mind of late, and then I saw Tammie's invitation to this drawing challenge!  A while ago I was thrilled to find a Roe deer antler on the marshland behind our home, and made a journal entry about it. These deer are British natives. ...

I found a real treasure while stewarding on Open Doors weekend at Kings Weston two weeks ago. A wonderful Victorian crazy quilt, which was languishing in a dark passageway. It had been mounted in a frame at some time. I squeaked a lot, then rushed off to ma...

Late Summer at Hawkwood with Frances Pickering

My 1920's Book
Well, here it is, as far as I've got.  As I said, this was a challenge. The 20's would not be my personal decade of choice for a subject, so I found it hard to get my head into  the right place. My cover was originally, going to be some sort of geometric fl...
