Creating Textile Books

For the past few weeks I've been creating books made with cloth and hand-woven textiles from various African countries.
Hand embroidery and beading experiments
I decided to embellish many of the pages with embroidery and beading.
African textiles and embroidery stitches
I'm working on hand carved linocuts for the rest of the "cloth" pages, and look forward to showing them soon.

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
