End papers (2)

And the inside back cover:

Again, the base is dark green Aida (thank you again, Mo), stitched very simply into an unmeasured nine-patch formation – a few straight stitches over a narrow ribbon yarn, with little scraps of treasure stitched into each space. I’m thinking ‘finds’ for this little sample, arranging small-scale mystery objects on a background. The outline you can see marked with tacking thread is the eight-inch square boundary where it will be matched up with the outer cover, when I get round to dealing with that.

It’s at times like these that I feel very pleased with myself for having kept 1″ square bits of linen and lace 🙂

      Thank you Christi 🙂 Good to be back, doing it purely for the pleasure of it all. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Even the smallest scraps come in handy… Which is a good echo of the fact that archaeologists now can get information out of astonishingly small finds – even pollen grains!
