I spent a couple of days making an old-fashioned needle book. I had a lot of fun combining decorative stitches, lace, canvas, fabrics, fleece, charms, and of course needles and pins! So satisfying!
My mother, grandmother and great-grandmother were all knitters.
When working with collages or books, you often need to weight down papers. I have 4 bricks, covered with paper that I've been using for years but I needed some smaller weights for a project I'm working on.
I found a new substrate that i LOVE! Butcher paper.
The view from my balcony every December is spectacular. That's because I live next to the Denver Botanic Gardens and they put on an outdoor light exhibit called "Blossoms of Light" every year.
Over the past 12 years, I have entered more than 100 exhibit opportunities. I got into about 50% of them as a fiber artist and loved seeing my work out there.
