The week, I mean. I've no idea what happened this week, apart from the laze-in-the-studio days flying by. I did get started on the inside of the stitched book, although progress is slower than expected. (Me, not the work itself.)

... in the house and in the studio this week. Seems like the loosening of restrictions has brought a number of people to town.
With a visit from our daughter and grandson, to a friend from a long drive away, it's been exceptionally busy here. The friend, Louise Olinger, was in town housesitting for a week, so we managed to play for two mornings in the studio. Louise is an accomplished watercolourist, and her website is pure delight, with enough eye candy to keep one occupied for hours. Louise' wish was to play with mixed media, so the glue cave got a great workout
I did remember to take a shot of the tags I created - some hours after she left!

...and finished the stitching on my second Coptic stitch book.
|5 1/4" x 3 7/8"|
And I so much enjoy the way the underlying texture peeks through everything...kinda sneaky, don'tcha think?! 😉
Here's to sneaky colour play - do let me know what you've been up to in the comments!

...in the studio. With a number of projects on the go (not the least of which is the second Coptic stitch book), I can't seem to stop playing. When alcohol inks hit wallpaper and look like this, why would I?
By the time I add a layer of stamping on top of the embossed areas, they're doubly delicious.
Of course that's not all I did this week - I finished the painting I was working on last week
and delivered it to its new owner, made what felt like a gazillion cards and got them off as well (sorry, no photos of those!).
This week? I'll get that stitchery going, I promise. Covers made, signatures done, thread waxed...what's to stop me? 😎
Happy week, my friends - be sure to let me know what you're up to in the comments!
