Sometimes, I get asked why I have a sketchbook, when my work is about textiles, but really, my sketchbooks (of which I have many) are great inspirations for my textile work.
Today's piece of work is directly inspired by some pictures in one of my books.
Also, here is another of the collage a day foundations I have added to.
On the right are black linen and satin pieces and the Grey square is a painted baby wipe. I free motioned the moth onto a piece of filmy gold organza, which is only just visible and if you look carefully, you can see I have not trimmed it right back to the stitching yet. I am quite pleased with this one and am itching to get on with some hand stitching on it!
