Stitches from my Studio

In the middle of it

That is where I am right now. As usual not concentrating on one thing at a time. I just finished a beautiful collage and am in the process of completing two more. So my worktables are absolutely covered in stuff; for example; beads and buttons, oil pastels and paint, stamps, stencils, wax seals, old old books (lovely yellowed pages) laces and ribbons, braids and trims, fabric, Japanese papers and tools, computer, printer, sewing machine, guillotine and press, brushes and glue.
Now I don't actually have enough room to put something together.

Projects I would like to get too and I will tell somebody to make me more accountable are:

'If these walls could talk' free project from cloth paper scissors. Its a standing collage house constructed with canvas, card and paper, sewn and glued together.

Dollies from free Dollie project.

Cloth embroidered book covers inspired by a project over at Rebecca sowers

and of course now some lovely Japanese Paper books for my lovely friend Kristy.

and I really should finish that Byzantine Mosaic Art Angel.....

I promise myself I will post photos soon. I need to add photography and working the gizmo's to my list of things to do or find someone to do it for me preferably.

Off to create.


  1. Good luck with your projects, they all sound so wonderful and we'll be waiting to see pics! Enjoy your creative time! Mx

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment. I love your blog banner and would love to see pictures of your art journal once you have it finished.

    My advice to you is, since you can bind your own books (my arthritis doesn't allow me to grip a needle needed for hand sewing), bind your signatures using a simple pamphlet or other bookbinding stitch rather than sewing them to the fabric using the sewing machine.
