Trish’s contribution

I’d been wondering how I’d find time to think about my contribution let alone write something in the book.  I’d gone to meet a student that day who forgot about her lesson, so I unexpectedly found myself with a whole day free. I went home and set about writing a number of meaningful quotations with a calligraphy pen, ending up with ten. I chose the neatest one that best fitted the page size. Then I added a piece of machine embroidery I’d made for a textile art course years ago. It was freely embroidered inside a wire coat hanger, then cut away. I had made several of them and attached them to a shawl for the course assessment, but had this one left over. Now it isn’t left over any more.

The sketchbook has now returned from its round-the-world trip back to Anne’s house. It’s been a unique pleasure for each of us to decide on a suitable contribution and then execute it.

Thank you Anne for your idea!

    It was a wonderful contribution, Trish. Your ‘shawl’ was so textural, and the message was just perfect for the Sketchbook. Thank you.

      Hi Anne, thanks for the compliment. Sandra just alerted me to the comments here. I’ve left wordpress dot com and am now self-hosting on All my previous blog posts are on the new site, exactly as before but I’m not connected to my old followers. Let me know if you ever have another group project going. Trish

      Thanks for the compliment on the calligraphy. I’m glad you like it. It was my tenth attempt that day. It’s not easy!
