Collage Work


I really like the idea of
combining the collage work with the stitching

I´ve been working with that
making some little kind of 'books'
with no pages inside - sort of a cover like
I´m not sure what to call these
but maybe you know, when you´ve seen my photos




here´s my worktable
with work in progress.
Gathering suppliers for a new piece
I love this stage in the creative process too


starting the background
adding little piece along the way


stitching little piece to add too


here´s a closeup



another one with a blue tone
making the background first
and then the sticthed pieces



they can stand
can you see


I think they are like little books without pages


maybe you know a better word for these
Let me hear.

*************

Spring is around the corner
I´m spending almost all my spare time remodeling
a new 'old ' house.
We´re taking over my MIL´s house
and are going to use it as a summer house.
if everything works out
I´m going to have a second studio

I´ll keep you posted 

Wishing you all a beautiful day

Little Stitched Books



I´m trying to combine the stitching love
with my love for bookmaking




here´s some stitching work in progress


and close up on those little squares.
Experimenting with different stitch


cut a pieces of vintage floral fabric
and added some signatures inside


ordinary blank pages inside


close up on the binding.
it´s just some running stitch
to hold the pages - I´m not sure
if there a proper word for this binding.


composing another one


here´s the stitching part
in progress on a beautiful sunny day


a green/turquise cloth for the cover


close up on the front



two little notebooks
with a button as closure.

The covers on these are just cloth
so they' re kind of primitive in a way
but pretty too, I think.

For sale in my shop

Thank you so much for visiting
