Island hopping

Sue had ventured off on a cruise visiting islands in the Atlantic .She went to The Canaries,Madeira,Cape Verde and finally St Helena, where she had an ancestor.All along the way she used her sketchbook to record things of interest ,preferring this to taking photos.A very personal way of making memories that can be revisited each time the book is opened.

Since her return she had been sorting through work that had been put aside.

Lots of lovely textures

and colours,

worked on the embellisher and destined to become backgrounds for stitch.

She had also attended the E.G.cyanotype workshop 

and created this ginkgo leaf which has been stitched into.
