My little book from Gina. It took me ages to decide what theme I wanted for my book, and I think my book must be the last to be made because of my dithering. In the end I decided on New Zealand or Australia, leaving the final choice up to Gina.
I just love it!
Paua shells decorate the top of the matchbox which is also covered in ferns, the national symbol of NZ.
Inside the box, my wonderful book. Machine embroidery and beaded spine, so much patience to make such a small book, I know I couldn't do it.
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.
