Mermaids



So, I've neglected my blog, I'm sorry for that, bad, bad blogger!
Maybe I can tempt you back with some of my new work!
To start with , my Mermaids, do you like them?
Also I have been making some Art Journals, handstitched front and back covers and paper and recycled card pages. I shall show you those next time.
Everything else in my life is pretty much the same except for this........
I'm going to be a Granny, woohoooo, much excitement here!!
So, Grandchild number 1 is due in February, can't wait and so I shall be getting out the crochet hook or the knitting needles and making baby blankets and things.
Oh , and cards , I have been making some Art cards, I shall show you those too.

Fabric journal cover.

The first post went well apart from the pictures were to big, so having adjusted the image resolution I shall try and show you some pictures of a fabric art journal cover I have made. This is one of a few I have made now. I shall look back and see if I have shown any yet, hmm, don't think so. So this one is only quite small, about 5 inches square. I have made some pages for it but haven't sewn them in yet. The cover on this one is made from hand painted fabrics mostly, with some commercial fabric, it's all hand stitched with lots of embroidery, lace, doillies, altered fabrics,buttons and beads. I'm going to add some danglies down the spine when I have stitched in the pages. I love making these books. Take a look........





Hello.

I'm experimenting on the iPad with the blogger app. It's been so long since I've been here, I've wanted to but was having so much trouble getting my pictures on that I sort of gave up!!!! But I'm back so I'm just going to try to upload some pictures and see how I go......
