In the spirit of ''artist books'' I have bought myself two A3 sketchbooks. These sketchbooks will become my own personal ''artist books''. They will be filled with ''keepers'', samples I need, samples I will use in workshops and embroidery school. One is for mainly cloth based samples, (a few paper and cloth mixes may appear in that one, the main thing is the sample will be predominantly cloth). The second one is for paper based sampling, design sheets and the like. At the end of this post is an image of the pieces which form my first page.
In other news.....storm Doris. A husband stuck on a train going nowhere in the middle of nowhere up North, a son stuck on a train going nowhere down South. A never ending stream of telephone calls and plans gone awry. It's been one of those days. Stitch will make it better, I know it will.
