Travelling Books 2015
So pleased that our Embroidery group has decided to take part in Travelling Books again this year. It's such a brilliant idea. We each set up a sketchbook and in January we each create a piece of embroidery and mount it along with some information about the inspiration for the piece. Tomorrow, we will then pass the book along to the next person in the group and in the book we collect, we'll add a piece of stitching ! We have two groups running, each with eight people in them. Such a lovely way to encourage regular stitching. I'll try and share each months experiment!
I've cheated a bit this month and I'm using a piece of stitching I made last year inspired by seaweed.
I started with these images, both paintings of seaweed.
