Painted calico,

I painted up a few pieces of calico recently with white household emulsion, and made some marks with charcoal and chalk pastels on this one, then rubbed some areas with Plexi glue and covered with gold Fibre In-Form foil, this one is ready for some stitch, and then maybe some more paint. I don't know what is going to happen to the other 3, Its such a miserable grey day should I go and do some much needed housework, ( I know, I know dirty word) or curl up with an old film and some stitching.

Carol I don't see that you have any choice it's the movie and stitching of course.

I like the way this piece is shaping up, the texture on the right looks like a rubbing. Looking forward to seeing where you take this.
I always find that HW on a rainy day makes me even more depressed, so I think it has to be the movie, combined with some hand stitch :-)
