Work in progress

This is to be a book wrap influenced by a picture in 'Edges and Finishes' Val Campbell-Harding.It is worked in strips of silk rods and of a newspaper from China Town in New York.The plan is to use it to hold photos from a holiday in May 2001; some of which were taken from the viewing gallery in The World Trade Centre.

It is mainly worked with a twin needle. It also incorporates pieces of hand made siesal paper and chiffon melted with a hot air gun. I have used acrylic wax to stabilise it. I will make some cords to tie it.

I have no idea what the lettering means - it looks nice and ornate - but probably says something mundane.
