This blog will be about
my creative efforts,
depending on the day.

Another altered book.
This is a fabric book,made from dyed and printed scrim, with layers of book pages and collage trapped within the fabric pages.I have used a Janet and John reader for the inspiration and text etc-anyone who is the same age as me will have learned to read using these primers.The drawings are crude but appealing and very nostalgic for me ,certainly.
The bottom picture shows the stitched spine,which I stitched with my lovely ancient hand machine-it didn't make a fuss about the thickness, as my new electric would have.
Finally,this one is for Daphne! (The meadow behind the house)
