There is great excitement.......

in the art world, a new fresco has been unearthed by builders restoring a 15th centrury chapel, this will probabley become known as one of the great wroks of art of all times..............but only in my dreams!!! This is the story I told myself while working on it.
In other words here is my killed catalogue made following Maggie Grey's madcap idea (and excellent instruction).

Here it is from raw catalogue to finish (with a lot missed out)




Looking forward now to Maggies new book "Stitches Straps and Layers" and especially to our own Calendar Girls Lynda and Carols book Stitching the Textured Surface

Looks wonderful Pat - I haven't started painting mine yet - it is still all curled up! Are you going to stitch into it at all?

Wow, these are really great. I love them. I'm just dipping my toe into this "catalog killing" adventure, and your works give me hope and inspiration.
