I have moved to Stage Two for Doors and Windows, morphing it into a Needlebook. Hopefully it will be a doorway into the many windows of stitching joy for its new owner. The Exercise in Patches from last post felt so good in my hands - sturdy, textured and substantial - definitely a tactile piece - that I wanted to do something with it that would maximise the 'feel-good' aspect which is perhaps the best part of creating storycloth. Afterall it is in the mutliple feelings that story becomes story. So, considering its dimensions and feel, I decided that a Needlebook would be best. I am no expert on making tassels and if anyone has any hints I would be MOST grateful.
At close of weekend needle I was holding this in my hand, opening it, closing it, turning the 'pages', passing it to my husband to open it and feel it. Looking at it open, looking at it closed... gently squeezing it - well you get the picture. It was just great!
Happy Stitching everyone, Gilly
