A Slow Stitch Cluster Experiment….

While under the weather post surgery, thought I might try something small….hence the background of a piece of stitching to be used as a cluster for a junk/art journal. Thinking I might want to incorporate some paper. And pleased that my finger tips cooperated. Yea!!!!

Best, Carol

Slow Stitch Progress…

Sharing the making of this piece of Slow Stitch on my YT channel…but, want to show some close-up pix of my progress to date….

This stitchery is a wonderful rabbit hole I have fallen into…..and I don’t want to leave. In fact I’m already thinking of my next project….a cover piece for my Altered Book Journal 2020.


Back Before Gave into the Arting Urge…70 Bucket List…

Thought I’d make another attempt at not ignoring my Blog. But since I have given into my Slow Stitching urge, hoping it might have put me on the right path….we’ll see and finfers crossed.

This Goldwork was the kind of stitching I did and loved every second – though it was pure craziness. However, still only 24 hours, and at 70 I made the choice. Many smiles there.

Could be why am loving the addition of Slow Stitching to arting…more on that.



The Root of a New Art Project…

Since I finally had the sense to take a picture of the inception of my next bit of arting, thought I’d share.

These are year’s old pieces of WC practices – washes and color practice – naturally my mind. went to some saved magazine bits.

So here thay are fussy cut and placed, for the monment, on the WC pieces. I have no real plan at this point.

Smiles, Carol

Part 4 in my 2020 Altered Book Journal…

Today I added napkins as a background on pages toward the back of the book – in an attempt to add balance. Then worked in the front…..embellishing spread. And, oh! Joy, had a brain storm as a final touch.

Please enjoy the pictures…will be going to You Tube on Friday.
