Page #1, the journey’s begun

From Kate Chiconi at TallTalesfromChiconia, North Queensland, Australia

After Anne, who made the book, I’m honoured to be first on the list to make a mark on the pristine pages of the Travelling Sketchbook.

It’s been a rough week or two for me health-wise as some of you will already know, but I’ve finally finished my entry, and here it is.

KateSketchbookPageHRA stitched image in fabric, a bit of loopy hand lettering and a sorta, kinda poem.

The sewn fabric piece is the hardest bit of foundation paper piecing I’ve ever made, but knowing how fond Anne is of feathers, it was a challenge that just had to be met.

I’m not totally in love with the lettering, but sometimes you just have to commit to getting something down on paper, don’t you? And I like the words. Actually, I’m not even sure which way the page should go, landscape or portrait.  I think I prefer portrait for the feather, but then the words are on their sides. You decide for yourselves which is better.

Below is the list of participants and links to them, so you can keep track of the Travelling Sketchbook’s journey.

and finally, back to Anne in Melbourne, Australia

Anne has made a map where we can record the Sketchbook’s travels, and I hope the others will also update and show this when they publish their contributions.
