Inspired by this............

I have made a collage of what I have on my table at present.
These items include:

Indian wooden blocks
Distress Inks
Coffee for staining/dyeing
Dyed Tussore Silk
Sari ribbon in an array of colours
Vintage Sari braid
Vintage dyed laces
Vintage recycled fabrics from Rajasthan
a Vintage book of poems by Persian Mystic, Jami.

These are the tools of some new inspirational work which I am playing around with
I  couldn't  decide whether  to make a journal or some cards
I decided to start small and create some cards:

Some detail of cards
(These two cards above have since been purchased and are off to Melbourne)
this one which is completely different using the vintage fabrics, some furnishing fabric
plus braid and some gorgeous lace which was a gift from
Judy does some very beautiful crazy patchwork, beading and stitching
amongst many other crafts - a truely talented woman.

Well another weekend is almost upon us - it's Friday in Australia
do hope you all have a wonderful time doing what you most love.

Love and hugs to all my followers
and thank you all so much for leaving such kind comments on my work.
