Francoise's Page


This is a page for Francoise on our Fiberartfriends book page swap,
Francoise's theme is writing systems, and so I chose Ogham, this link shows a simplified version of the alphabet, this is a really fascinating subject, and something I have been planning on using for a long time, so this page was the perfect start.
The base fabric has been around in my stash for a long time, I just knew it would come in handy, the work is machine embroidery on soluble, I free machine stitched
the Ogham symbol, to make it look as if it is scratched into stone, I hope Francoise likes it,
