Paper with silk threads

I’ve been doing some more work on the fabric book, but it’s not really worth posting.  There’s nothing particularly gripping about tacking around edges, or ironing on interfacing is there?

I have also been making more paper.  It works really well with chopped up bits of silk thread, sent to me by a friend who has recently disappeared into thin air.  I miss her, actually.

  1. Oh, that’s really pretty. I must get around to making some paper – I’ve had the kit since Christmas and done nothing with it yet.

  2. Have a play! It’s good fun, and quite relaxing once you get into it. You can get some really interesting effects with different types of inclusions, and by varying the thickness of the pulp.

    Good to see you!

  3. I will. Just as soon as I don’t have to watch Nell constantly. This “getting a life” stuff should leave plenty of time free for wet play in the utility room. I hope to get some felting done soon, too.

  4. Oh – I still haven’t tried felting! That’s on my list of things to have a go at sometime.
