This week I’ve been finishing some zig zag books, and getting some new books ready to be stitched. The new books will be quite a long project, as they will need to be machine stitched and finished with hand stitch before I bind them. Then I intend to make the satchel I mentioned earlier for them, so that should keep me quiet for a while, especially if I stitch it in needlepoint, which I would like to. Better start that first, I think.
I’ve decided to add some finished pieces to the satchel too, which I will show at some point. These include a boxed book I made some time ago that has never been out into the world, and who knows what else will appear. Its going to need to be quite a large satchel…
And one that’s still being stitched, below.
And here are the new books, their pages in a neat pile, waiting for their turn. I had some words that needed to be put down, a selection of very short stories/paragraphs and observations. They’re illustrated with digital images of my work; I’ll post them as I finish them.
