So Friday has come around again, due to a very messy week
I wasn't able to post on my quilting. I missed the chance to
say a very Happy Thanksgiving, so a belated wish
that you did enjoy the day.
I collected a new book today, it was ordered quite some
time ago but it's only just flown into my hand!
This is a real treasure!! I have followed Mandy's blog
ever since I first began blogging and last year I bought three of her
small collage pieces and had them matted and framed. I
wrote a post and photograph of all three together but was asked by a few bloggers
if I could show a full shot of each - here they are - sorry they didn't crop well.,
but I'm sure you'll love them regardless.
Love the turkey reds in the one above
soft mushroomy shades with that hint of maroon in the flower
and this one was a win, win with the scissor tape.
Mandy covers materials, process, fabrics and lots more in the book.
My favourite section is about making collaged books - I have already gathered
a few laces, buttons and old embroidered pieces together!
If textile collage interests you go along to Mandy's blog
it's a delight.
Gotta have a favourite flower of the week and coming up to the
Christmas season here we have the
Pohutukawa aka The New Zealand Christmas tree
and mine, here in the large pot, needs a little TLC I think.
Have a happy quilty weekend, back during the week.
