A friend of mine is not so well at the moment.  She loves colour, it makes her happy, so I decided to make a small book into which I will set the following ATCs.  I hope it brings her some cheer.

Hand-dyed fabric, couched fibre and hand stitching.

Left: machine-appliquéd batik scraps; Right: layered fabrics with applied fibres.

Left and Right: Acrylics, pen and ink; Centre: couched fibres.

Left: mono-printed fabric, machine stitched; Centre: layered papers and fabric with couched fibres; Right: hand-painted paper by Laura Hegarty with machine applied pieces.

Left: hand-painted silk, centre quilted and machine stitched; Centre: felted dyed wools with couched thread; Right: mono-printed fabric with couched fibres.

Left: Layered fabrics and silk-tops, machine and hand stitching; Right: mixture of couched fibres.

It was fun to play this way, experimenting on a small scale.
