TRAVELLING BOOKS

Nothing for months and then the posts come along like buses! 🙂

Some branches of the Embroiderers’ Guild have started travelling books and my branch (Lutterworth) is taking part. Basically what happens is that participating members are divided into groups of six and each member buys a small  (5 x 5″) spiral bound sketch book. The book one starts with ultimately becomes yours at the end of the process.

I worked page one in my own book and then at the next meeting passed it on to the next member in my group of six……. and so on. We have just come to the end of the first round and below are the pages I made. For some reason one is missing, but you will get the idea.

This week we will hand these six books over to a new team and receive theirs in return. Then begin the rounds again, until the books are full. At the end the first one becomes mine to keep.

I am finding it is fun and not too onerous as the pieces are small and one has a month to finish it.

    They are beautiful Dorothy, we in Herts EG are TB too it must be the latest and really lovely thing. If you have space perhaps we could swop pages rather than actually posting the book?
