In my quest to continue with the type of work I showed you yesterday I have been titivating a scrap of stitched paper. Pieces like this need a stock of scraps to pull from...that is what this is. It's quite therapeutic to stitch a row of bullion knots onto collaged, stitched paper. The surface is obviously very different to cloth yet it has it's own unique appeal.
I have plans for a lot more work like the piece I showed you yesterday. More collage needs to be put together, more paper needs to be stitched to scraps of fabric. There is new lace on order for a lace cloth/paper combo I wish to make too so prepare yourself for quite a few ''scrappy, paper, collage'' posts over the next ten days or so.
Cloth hasn't been completely abandoned, don't worry. There is embroidery on cloth happening in ''embroidery school'' and I hope to give you a glimpse of that sometime soon. We have been open for almost a week now. You're not too late to join us if you'd like to be part of a wonderful group of creative people. There is more information here.
