Travelling Books

I have started a new project with the Embroiderer's Guild called travelling books. So far I'm loving it! 

This is how it works, you create a piece of work in a sketchbook, you then pass your sketchbook on to the next person and they create a page in your book, and so on and so on. It's working really well for me as I only need to create one piece a month which is realistic with my job. It doesn't have to fit a theme and is very flexible. 
I'm still focusing on similar colours to usual but trying to get a little bit out of my comfort zone one sample at a time! I am using some Keats poetry as my inspiration :) my samples don't stay with me so I'm taking photos as I go- I will try to update regularly.
