I was able to get 3 letters done this week.
F is foiling which I did on fabric. Not easy to keep it clean looking, I think a smaller iron would have worked better. I used a gold foil, multi-colour foil, then blue over top.
G was fun, all pencil work. Good practice for me as I don't do enough work with graphite.
H is herringbone embroidery stitch which I had never done before. I used 2 thread colours (blue and green) to try to create more depth.
Some changes to upcoming letters: J will now be "junk" and K will now be "kirigami". I had originally chosen jute, but it's just too thick for this kind of book.
I hope to post I and J by January 19th.

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.
