Home Work

I do most of my stitching at home. Here are 3 book covers that I have been working on. The two at the bottom will be fro fabric wrapped journals and the stitching on those is finished. The top one is a cover for a larger paper journal which includes some of my prints. Normally on these I leave the spine exposed and have hard covers but this time for a change it will be covered and nice and soft.

We are settling in here in our first floor eerie with our view of Chickenfeed from our lounge room window. But it is a nice light bright apartment which is a necessity with the long winters we have down here. Thankfully not usually cold enough for snow though.

University starts up this week for Dan but I don't start till the week after. Yes I am going back to Uni. I will be doing a Masters Degree in Contemporary Art with a focus on Sustainability. Hopefully I will be able to spill info over to you.
