I've started to stitch and add beads and felt motives to the piece in the previous post. I'm going to add washers and beads to the centres of the circles.
I also made some silk paper to add to my journals.
These are fabric and decorated paper pages waiting to be turned into another journal.
Above are some of the fabric stitched pages.
We've finally found a wonderful aged care facility for my eighty eight year old father. It's taken so long. He's been in hospital for over fourteen weeks. My sister and I moved him into the home last week, he has a fabulous room and the facility really encourages family participation in all things. He's only been there a few days and we've noticed his walking has improved already. The home is close to my sister so she drops in each day to visit him. He looks rather apprehensive in this photo as he's about to leave hospital. He seems quite settled now, we just hope it lasts.
I had another wonderful group of students on Saturday attend my Junk Journal workshop. It was a hive of activity sorting and assembling junk papers and then binding them into a journal. The covers take the most time as the process involves using moulding paste and lace or stencils, this then has to dry and be painted. The results were fabulous, each one totally unique.
