For some reason I have been taken by the urge to make some lino cut blocks today. Not sure how this is going to help me make my page for Kath, but I tend to follow urges like this to find out where it is all going to lead. I wish I was more organised and could sketch everything else first, but that just doesn't usually work for me.
Just for now I have this fascination with the idea of mixing print with stitch. I shall let you know what happens next as soon as I have worked that out for myself.
Have fun!


  1. what a wonderful idea!
    I've been in a round robin travel book, but this is great!
    Good luck with it and happy new year!


  2. Your stamps look great. Can't wait to see how you combine them with stitch.

  3. A wonderful idea. For those of us who have never done this, I hope you will fill us in on details of the process. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished work.

  4. Yes, please. I think the idea of print plus stitch sounds great and I'd love to see how you do it.

  5. Yes, please Mandy. Even if it doesn't work as you want I'd love to see / have it as my page. I did make a comment that I'm going to use this 'challenge' to challenge myself to use different techniques and I'd love my pages from others to be the same. My friend and I use to make each other Christmas and Birthday pressies and we both knew that if they hadn't turned out exactly right that the doing and trying something new was the thing. Thank you in advance!! Kath

  6. Oh Go with this!!! love combbining paint and stitch and then adding beads etc!! my problem is finding a place to stop!!!! For now I have to get started!!!
    You have inspired me!!
