Two more numbers done this week:
0 - This was an exercise in learning to make cording. The material I chose - called Knotmore, new product from the U.S. - was slippery to work with as it's waxed, but overall I'm pleased with how it turned out. Not as neat as I'd like perhaps, but at least I now know how to make cording.
9 - I had been wanting to try embroidery on bookcloth for some time. My plan was to add words in a metallic thread, much, aiming for a look similar to the gold lettering used on book spines. Alas, the metallic thread kept breaking as I worked on the bookcloth (it's a leather-type material). So I then switched to a silk thread, which worked much much better. I'll need to continue trying different types of threads to see what else may work and if I can eventually get the gold colour.

It's taken years to discover the medium I enjoy the most. And how what I have learned before somehow fits into what I am doing now. Even when I travel my needles and threads are with me so I can continue to create while away.
