Time flies and I'm counting down to Christmas already!!!
well, I thought if I am going to send off handmade Christmas pressies..then I should be doing so.. :)
I painted some backgrounds today and bound them in a book..
|It's my first exposed spine stitching hand bound book..|
(much as I love making books, I reckon I do have a while to go to figure out the whole process).. ;)
these pages will be ready for me to "alter" and to journal on
in the next weeks to come..
meet Pansy, one of my motley crew from the teddy bear garden..
Pansy is handstitched, part mohair and
the body and limbs were made from corduroy..
and here's the twosome... Pansy and Roy
Roy is handstitched from 100% sparse mohair.
see those stitches on the spine of the book?
I think I'm better off sewing teddy bears ha ha!!
"The mind in its natural state can be compared to the sky,
covered by layers of cloud which hide its true nature"
Happy weekend dear friends!!
