Fiona's e f g h

I have continued to stitch into my rusted braille paper and I am so happy that I discovered embroidering paper - who'd have thought? Each week I add a bit of decoration in the background to make the letters slightly individual. Despite the photos - they are all stitched in a beautiful soft grey thread.

E - I made a series of small spiral swirls with a lead pencil in one corner of the square

F- A few bits of silver leaf were attached - I like how they echo some of the shapes in the rusted paper

G- I chose some interestingly marked paper and didn't embellish it as there is quite a bit of letter going on

H- Once again, burnt incense holes and charring appear...
