‘Doodle Book’You’d be forgiven for thinking ‘more rust, more journals – and...?’
BUT it’s the fabric/material (call it what you will) I rusted that is the issue here. It ends up feeling like a soft suede – unbelievable. This (unfinished) hanging is also made from the same rusted fabric with a glaze over the top.Close up you can see the rust marks through the glaze.I also made this 'Doodle Book' from the same fabric. Not really my colours but it's good to try something different.The inside pages – all part of the process of putting it together.This is what was used for the inside cover – a wipe clean surface!
Although these pieces do not feature in ‘Stitching the Textured Surface’, you will have to buy the book to find out what was used and how to put them together. Hows that for a bit of cryptic wording? :)
As I said before the colours of this ‘Doodle Book’ are not really me so if anyone would like to give it a good home then just leave your name on here or if you’d rather, just email me ‘off-blog’ (is that a term?) and I'll do the usual in a week or so and draw a name out of a hat.

I’m on the trade stand at the Essex Young Farmers Show this Sunday. Being the only woman in a chauvinistic environment they all seem to think I am well pleased to be serving refreshments all day Sunday!!! If anyone reading this is coming along, please come and say hello. Don’t think I’m allowed to mention the company I work for on here, suffice to say we are the dealership for those top-of-the-range green and yellow machines, so you should have no trouble finding me :)
