Missing strip cloth.

Liz has been using strip cloth for a good many years ,sourced through Maggie Relph and the African Fabric shop. However, there seems to be a shortage so Liz is trying other fabric.
These pieces are naturally dyed cherry on tree silk kapok.It is a softer, looser weave as you can see from the picture below, it is on the left.Liz has put two pieces back to back so these will be double sided and to be seen in the round.

Like some  of us, she has been "resting and considering."To keep her hand in she has been 'mending' this indigo piece by adding in patches with hand stitch and adding to the piece she brought last month.

With her plans to work pieces based around the Oak tree she had spent a lovely time in Foyles  bookshop and picked up this ,below.
