I know I am bragging...I am having fun getting our books ready,
it all started because I have so many mates with nice books I was feeling a little left out.....and I have so many nice things we have found here in India. Handloomed fabics, block print, hand stitch all the things we play with on a daily basis really and I wanted to share them with my mates when I was visiting.....
all started to roll together and I thought we could have our own book.
Funny thing is I mentioned this to Praveen who is not into books at all and he thought it was a great idea. Picture books are much different to ones just full of words.
So with him spurring it on we have got our act togther.
We have a great machine embroidery guy in Ajmer who can reproduce my sketches and then I hand stitched colour into them.
Like pen and ink drawings with a water colour wash I learnt about on a Creative Arts Safaris Tour with Leonie Norton once but in my media.
Will bring the first batch to Oz and Dawn can help me bind them together and I will have them as well as all the other Textile stuff at Ballarat and Blue Mountains.....
fun, fun having your own workshop.
much more time to develop ideas when you have help in the stitching department.
