Fiona's four for September

Here are the next four in my alphabet.  Still enjoying stitching on paper and the lovely marks and texture of the rusted braille paper.

I have just been down to the studio to double check my mistake and yep - the 'j' was supposed to be an outline letter, not a filled in one. So the sequence is now busted and the book shall forever have that sense of unique handmade-ness!

In each of these I have just used pencil in the background to add some interest or build on the beautiful marks already there.


PS The 'i' is not as pale as the photo would suggest.

Yes, I agree with Elaine. The added touch of the pencil work Fiona works beautifully. Thank you. xgb
