A few additions.

I have added a little tree in a pot to the first page of my fabric book, and a bit more 'planting' on the left of the photo.

I found just the right place for the mini garden tools on the third page. I have left page 2 unaltered and must now think up something to illustrate the others.



I added more hand stitching to the little landscape made on the embellisher with silk and wool tops, silk rods etc., on a knitted background, and mounted it in a box frame. I usually prefer textiles not to be under glass, but this particular design needs protection. There are two other pieces to be worked on but I don't quite know what to do with them yet. They will be landscapes too, but I want each one to have a different feel to it although they will all be made using the same techniques.


I thought you might like to see a close up of the stitching. The photos are not good as the light is awful today and I can't get on with my coursework which at this stage involves mixing and matching colours.


This is the top part of the design and even worse as it seems blurred to me - apologies for that. It actually looks better in reality!

Thanks Kat, but I think Jules is more artistic than I am.

I love the fabric pages and the picture in the frame is gorgeous. I like the way you've taken the rocks over the edge of the mount.

The pages just get better Heather. I don't think that the gloomy weather is helping photography at the moment but your landscape looks great anyway..
