Jaipur Memories

Jaipur Memories

My hand is finally mended enough that I can  begin getting creative again. One of the first things on my ever growing ‘to do’ list was to finish off my rag  journal documenting my fabulous trip to Jaipur with Colouricious Holidays last year. I made two smaller versions as Christmas presents but didn’t manage to complete my own. This includes fabric samples from all our printing workshops, photographs, drawings, embroidered block prints, journal entries and all sorts of other ephemera collected whilst away. Feeling very satisified with myself although it is still likely be a few weeks before I am back to full stitching mode.

Making Marks

A belated Happy New Year. Sadly no sewing for me so far due to injuring my left hand at the end of 2017. Thankfully I am right handed and so am taking the opportunity to explore some ‘mark’ making. Acrylic ink and water on Khadi (rag) paper using a Chinese paint brush, old store cards, pen tops and a cardboard tube…..
