As well as life in general happening including some more longer walks I have been getting a few bits ready for the Craft 4 Crafters show at Westpoint this week.
I put together this 8 x 11 inch piece called Opus Motif 1 inspired by, yes you guessed it, the Opus Anglicanum exhibition.
Background made on the embellisher, silk paper central motif and canvas and stitch frame with a 5 strand braid around the edge. I loved the Bishop's stocking and shoe and think I will at least be taking some more sketches from them.
I also made some matchbox books to display with one of the articles recently done for Workshop on the Web by Lesley Patterson-Marx
Also to demonstrate what you can do with the embellisher I made this piece called Maelstrom this weekend. A pain to photograph as it's 1 metre by 20 cm and Blogsy wouldn't load it on its own so I had to tile it with a couple of close ups.
