I've been distracting myself from my BIG projects by tinkering at little ones. This distraction is called "ORGANISM NECKLACE" and is made from vintage kimono off-cuts. The hand-stitch pulls the fabric in so that it gathers, ripples and creates an almost fungi look, or some unexplainable organism.

My paper urchins I've been making for a while now have been adopted by the retail clan at Craft Victoria. If you get a chance, have a look! They're $40 and are handmade from the start to finish!

my fingers seem to be developing calluses simply from folding pages over...

... but that's okay, I have some goodies to show for it.
There has been a little re-working on ideas for the MINE christmas window, however. Originally I was to make a tree from piled book sculptures, but I decided it didn't look as effective as desired. This idea may or may not be scrapped. In the meantime I've discovered my book-sculpting has become somewhat of an addiction.
Got any old books?
