I've not had much time lately for anything earth shattering in the creative department but I have managed to complete the next part of Kate North's Stay At Home Robin.
I'm making this up as I go along but it sort of told me it wanted the red batik repeating so I went along with it. I didn't think about it too much just pieced scraps of the fabrics I'd used in the first square.
I've also got round to making my second book using Carole Brungar's methods. There is a link to the sketchbook course in her right hand sidebar.
I used mountboard (mat board) for the covers and the spine is three layers of cloth. The pennant on the front cover is the one I won at the Festival of Quilts and I'm really pleased to have found a use for it.
The pages are a selection of watercolour pages that I had painted previously, tracing paper, sketch paper and greetings cards. I'm going to add some lacey bits but mostly I will leave the pages blank to be worked on later when I next go on my hols.
Energy is sadly lacking at the moment and a certain lack of interest in much at all but I am trying. (Very, some might say!) The best news this week is that my dear friend is finally out of hospital! Yay! She still has a lot of recuperating to do but at least she is out of the hospital environment and she is much happier for it. Thank you everyone for all your good wishes over the last 7 weeks.
Ooh! I nearly forgot! Welcome to my Followers number 100 and 101! How cool is that? More than 100 followers for my inane ramblings :o) Thank you everyone for being interested in my little corner of the world.
