You know you'v been a slack blogger...

When it's your Mum whose asks when you are going to update!

An update on what I've been doing... I'm working on a fabric book using my rust dyed fabrics that I've made over the last 12 months. It's last minute preparation for an exhbition that a group I'm in is putting on. Should finish it this weekend in time for hanging on Wednesday - It's been partly constructe for some time, just had nothing on the pages.

This is where I'm at so far. Many of the pages are spontaneous stitching. This is not something that I've don e a lot of and I am enjoying it. Some will be pictorial. The theme I'm working on is the land, more specifically Australia, and it's rusted colouring.

A scene I see as I sit on the trian - tree lined horizons

The first page I did - the one of the left looks like uprooted treet - like those on a creek bed when the banks have been eroded away. The line along the bottom is representational of a dried creek bed.

I still have a few pages to go - one double spread and 5 single pages. These are all mapped out in my head, I just need to get them down on paper, i mean fabric. Posted by Picasa
