good fortune joss papers .....

I spent almost all my time yesterday working on the second alphabet for the ALAW project which Fiona instigated and coordinates.  I thought the letters may take me all week but I managed to get them done and now I have only the box to make today.  It is always so exciting to complete a project and be able to move onto the next one.

My next project is to come up with an idea for Fiona's and my collaborative piece.  Our thirteen envelopes ..... which when we were making gave me so much inspiration and now I don't know where I hid it.  Maybe once I start handling the envelopes again, getting a feel for them, the inspiration will come back.  Fiona and I managed to chat a little about our project when we were heading down the the Cover to Cover exhibition last week and not surprisingly, we are thinking along the same lines.  I must confess that I had only come up with one line of thought, and Fiona seemed to have had a number.  It will be such fun to see what we come up with.

I am about to post on my second alphabet to ALAW, but for those of you who do not follow that blog, I thought I would add a couple of photographs here.  They are not good shots for showing the alphabet, but I loved the way they photographed on my heating bed.  I didn't have any light on in the room so I think it must just be the outside light that gave the lovely glow.  My eye did not pick it up - only the camera. 

I do love how the camera can continue to surprise.....



  1. S-I am always blown away by your attention to detail and application of skills to any project you take on - no doubt the finished product of this alphabet will be exquisite. B

  2. 'Tis good to get a wriggle on, no matter what or who inspires it! This alphabet looks beautiful and I am pleased you were able to get it done in between the rest of it all.

  3. I enjoy the clean space, the shapes and the marks and line! Very appealing! As Barry said, Exquisite!


I appreciate your comments - thank you!
