WOYWW - paper and fabric

Hello Wednesday peeps. Hope everyone is well. Here is the table of indeterminate purpose for your perusal this week. Please click on what is most likely by now an outdated link through to the Queen of desks (will get it sorted by next week.....)

On the left is the light of my art life, this weeks contribution to Darcy's postcard challenge, in progress and on the right my crafty satisfaction I have been playing around with creating fabric designs (a friend bought me Sew Wild for Christmas there is a whole hoard of lovely stuff on making your own patterned fabric). Not a clue what do with them now mind - any ideas?

(Hi Neet yes they were all cut free hand in red and black felt then embroidered on together to form the knots!)

Finally the last of the secret Santy stuff. This was made for the lovely Doone (who has a live videoed flick through on her blog) and sandwiched with a bunch of other stuff. She nearly didn't get it as I felt quite quite proud at the end of it :) It's my first ever book, feel free to skip to the end or peruse photo's at your leisure ;)

Spent an hour and a half doodling faces, Timothy drew trains and carriages on the back, original scanned and then printed off twice to cover front and back. 

scanned in image, original picture kept


Has a random list of things you can learn from A - Z (yes I got something for every letter!)

I adore the book, as I said - you sent me loads of truly wonderful stuff, but the book is my fave because you made it, I adore, simply adore, the little white sparkling angel that head butts the evil little demon every time I close the book.

Very nice! I love all those faces it must have taken you forever!
I tried to comment last week on your blog and Mr. Blogger was acting up on me. After the 10th blog (I know cause I have them recorded)...I gave up! It seems to be working OK today so far, so I'm visiting everyone on my list from last week first before anyone else. Thanks for the visit and have a great day!

I love your book for Doone, it is wonderful and the faces... the faces are fabulous!!

MaggieC said...

That book is great and must have taken you so long to devise and create it. Thank you for your visit to me. My surface is not too sticky. As it is a kitchen work surface, I can safely use a de-glue spray to clean it down regularly. Maggie #70

Great post. I need to check out Sew Wild and Stitched Postcards - they sound brill. I am having a rest from making little frocks - I have been making children's dressing up outfits for a friend instead!! Have a good week. x Jo

That book is incredible and how fun it must have been to make it, coming up with the ideas and executing it. Thanks for sharing!

Katie said...
