More skinny page close ups...

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I did take just a  few odds and ends with me on vacationm ( a small bag of embroidery thread, seed beads and some collages printed onto fabric).   I thought this would help pass the time in the air travelling.  However, we did spend a few evenings watching some of the Olympic events in Vancouver,so  I was happy to have them as I am not the type of person who can sit and watch TV without having something else 'on the go' - especially sports! 

So, most of these photos are just random close up images of pages in progress, the most ambitious of which was embroidering a chandelier...yup - just choked and squirmed in my chair as I typed that phrase out...What can I say?  I find it very relaxing...

OMG! You DID embroider a chandelier!!! I squinted and squinted to try to see "more" in each of these enticing pictures, Trudi. I absolutely LOVE your fabric collages and can't wait to see the final results. Hugs, Terri xoxo

All of your art here is so gorgeous. I am trying to find word to describe how I love it. Your photographs have drawn me into each stitch and bead, each tiny detail is a work of art in itself. Your days of vacationing and art. So lovely... roxanne
