New work
Paper and stitch collages.  I managed to spend the whole day in my studio last Monday and found a stack of vintage french newspapers and vintage advertising books that i'd forgotten about.
Paper collages
    "Sacred Reality"  "Our Dreams are Tales"
 Pages from vintage french advertising books and snippets of fabric from a Victorian patchwork quilt
... a little bit of paint
 I also found a box of vintage wooden cotton reels i'd forgotten about, all different sizes, shapes and colours.

Another vintage cotton reel, with double sided collage wound around

Hello, to old and new from here
welcome to my new blog
Silently replacing the broken fragments...
A work in progress

I found this old book page floating around in my art room last weekend and decorated it with pieces of a victorian quilt, it's very fragile.  I planned to add some stitches but am afraid it will fall apart.  I quite like it as it is, but maybe it needs just a little more thought.

Book Art #1 - for the love of flowers
hand made paper embellished with vintage note paper, stitched and painted approx 3"x4"

It's been dreary and cold here in Montgomery, the highlight of the day is when i switch on my twinkling christmas lights to light up my shop....makes me feel all magical.
