Sallie was on the walls, and I was on the table :) with my embroidered and mixed media books!
We both had a fantastic time, and for me it was sheer joy to able to talk about books and nature and stitching and mixed media to lovely, like minded people! These are some of the books I took along:
The cover of 'Briarside Lane' a current WIP which is based around The Raspberry Rabbits project of the same name....
'A Little Book of Stamps'
The pages are simply painted, and enhanced with a variety of handmade stamps and simple stitch.
'Tiny Garden' - meander book, came about from a sample class I created, making simple garden flowers from only three stitches. |A little book seemed the perfect format to keep them in!
Whatever the size, or the mediums used, the one thing my books have in common is hand stitch, and my favourite threads from Valdani of course!
I'm very excited to be offering Saturday workshops this autumn, sharing some of the techniques I have developed! Details of these are on the Classes and Workshops tab, and I'll be talking about them more here soon.
We were also proud to be representing The Raspberry Rabbits in the UK, with Michelle's original stunning quilt The Adventures of Harrington and Hannah, all the way from North Carolina, on display!
