Slash and burn.

Make that stitch and burn.P1000634

This – yesterday’s sample -








led to 21 of these – a stitched photo before and after burning. [You can tell that I am still coming to terms with my new camera.]


I like the way the stitch makes the bottle cap look almost 3D.




Safety procedures were followed – although I forget to wear my mask , and the process is smelly.







The burned scraps are waiting to be stitched together.

The yellow background is temporary - my messy surface, which is a John Lewis bag over foam board. Useful because I can lift it off the table onto the floor when I want to do something odd like eat off the table.

All that after a bad night, a visit to the gym, and the usual chores.

Will it last?
