At last!! I have finished embellishing the book I started on the Lynda Monk workshop I went to the other week. Following the theme of the sewing pattern that was used to make the cover (technique for this, is on this months WOW) I used an old tape measure, coloured with alcohol inks for the tie closures, a Tim Holtz die was used to cut the mannequin which was covered with an advert from an old Needlewoman & Needlework magazine from 1961, it was then heat embossed to protect it. I coloured the press studs with alcohol inks too, as I didn't have any black ones. I can't wait to see how everyone else finished their books at our next Embroiderers' Guild meeting
I can't remember a time when I was not knitting or sewing as a child, I even gained my knitting and sewing badges in the Guides!I have completed C & G in Patchwork and Quilting. I continue to explore and create with fabric, stitch and mixed media. I am a member of Fen Edge Textiles and Schoolhouse Arts.
