I am looking forward to that pretty blossom and daffodils and lighter evenings. Oh dear, sorry I'm off on one again. Change the subject Viv................
I may have been quiet over the last few days but I have not slackened off on my mission to keep the creativity going and not get bogged down with fatigue and then get the miseries!
I have really enjoyed working this textile collage. All fabric and old snippets of all things textile including a page from a 'Dean's Indestructable' Rag Book, which some of us of a certain age may remember from our very early days. So lots of hand applique, embroidery and buttons!!!!
Onto the second piece. This is based on a envelope dated 29th June 1833 can you believe. What does that make it ....176 years old, is that right???? I find it hard to imagine the journey this envelope has been on, so many many years of sitting in various drawers, boxes or maybe attics? And after all that time, it has ended up being used as the basis for a collage and embroidery by a very strange woman, who likes to fill her life with what has gone before!
It even has the old wax seal.
Bit of Liberty thrown into the mix.
Thanks for stopping by.x
