Bringing it all Together

Behind the Woodland Scratchings
are stitches and knots
unchained by self consciousness

Around the measured edges edges of older works
bindings keep them on the straight and narrow

Daily Scratchings
neatly joined and folded
but no neat edging here.


  1. This is fabulous. Just think of the delightful hours you've had making all these lovely scratchings.

  2. Stitches, color, texture add up to a beautiful whole.

  3. I like the fact that there are stories in the edges too!

  4. Hello Penny - I have just found your blog and work via your interview by Carli. I love your work. I was fortunate to study with Opus and to have enjoyed a Julia Caprara workshop which is the most inspiring I have ever been on. Looking forward to following your blog. xx

  5. Wow, I love the stacks of these stitches and like the neat and not so neat edges!

  6. What a wonderful welter of stitchery!
