Scratching Through The Layers of One Week


Sometimes a week takes on a completely different character.


It seems to have been a week about applying layers.


I suppose I am multi layered!


The art of throwing bleach around!


I added a piece of knitting
and wove more threads into it to bring it under control


Friday turned into a doodle day


Finally cut into a favourite old shirt and threw a strip on my scratchings.


Thinking of how Christmas will soon be upon us
I cut baubles out of luscious red velvet.

    Love the red baubles. What an amazing cloth diary this is. I've been enjoying your scratchings this year. Will you keep going next year?

    Sending lots of Christmas Cheer,

  5. Beautiful colours and such interesting textures with both the fabrics and the stitches you have used.
    In regard to your previous post: Life Cycles, it seems to be a stage that I am also at, adjusting to both my parents & my MIL ageing and also watching our young adult children becoming more & more independent.

    1. It's not easy watching your parents age and your children spread their wings.
