FET

Had a lovely day in Cottenham, my turn to drive and the sun was shining for a change!  In fact the weather was so good, that we ate our lunch outside.  Today we have been experimenting with paper.

Nickie hard at work driving her sewing machine creating her 'fabric'.

Paper string wrapped around frame, mullberry paper torn and placed between warp and weft threads, placed on a fine hand made paper and fms.  Printed tissue applied on top.

A double layer of newspaper with a  machined stitched grid.  Coloured with coffee and distressed to create voids.  As the coffee didnt colour enough, tonight I have coloured it with walnut ink.
