I was pondering on grids last week and looking through the sketchbooks I had recently made. I was also lost in the quilting maze for a couple of days when I realised that all the lines were starting to have a very oriental look to them.  Painting papers is my favourite way to relax so a Chinese influenced book started to percolate in my mind. Gina's class provided a panel for the front of the book and I have  spent a day or two producing a wrap cover.

Some of the discarded papers from Dionne Swift's course had a distinctly oriental feel to them and my friend Biddy contributed some reference books and some old Chinese coins. I've just put my order in with my son in Shanghai (via Skype) for some further embellishments. So that is my main project for the next few days/weeks, as well as finishing off some more ufo's. I'll blog my process as I go along.

  1. Lovely wrap. The oriental pages look good and I'm looking forward to seeing the progress on this.
