Tea And Coffee Lampshade

Tea And Coffee Lampshade In Favorite Corner

Hand stitched this lampshade.  I call it tea and coffee because I had trouble getting the right color for the fringe and gimp to finish it. So I dyed it with tea and coffee.   It is a pleasure to have on to illuminate this favorite corner.

Petit Point On Linen

Petit Point On Linen

I like to call this piece "serendipity"  ...... read on:
I had painted the grunge background paper and it was lying on my studio table. I found the petit point on linen and just set it on top when it jumped out at me that the two must be together. Laid it all on my scanner including the beaded chain and hoped for the best!
Scanned with HP Scanjet G3110.
I am hoping to create an actual page for a Cloth Book one day.
