Monsoon inspired fiber book

The Monsoon has inspired poets, musicians and artists on the Indian subcontinent for centuries and it's my turn  to attempt capturing the moods of this season in a small fiber book which will measure approximately 4" x 6" when it's complete.
 Embroidery and applique. I'm exploring and creating a variation of how to make a fiber book. The process of making this little book will serve to make a tutorial which I have promised some visitors to the blog. I request some patience, the tutorial will be posted once the book is completed.
The beginnings of another page. I'm using some of the natural dyed and rust dyed fabrics from my stash. The rusty washer found on my morning walk made that beautiful burning summer sun.

Change is in the air.

Have a good weekend.

In a former life (very former - a long time ago), I was a geography teacher - I look forward very much to seeing how you represent the monsoon!

Maya I've only just discovered your blog and I'm absolutely thrilled. You've inspired me so much, I've always wanted to make a book and now with TAST starting up again it's the ideal opportunity. I've been very ill for a long time and desparately need to take my mind of things, thank you so much. Kind regards Mandy (
