Napkin Diary For November 2014

This is a much better photo of my napkin diary for November 2014, and below are the links explaining the images and words.

Plus, I don’t think I mentioned that it is mounted onto a page from an old wallpaper samples book, given to me by my friend, Annie.

I have stitched four diary napkins for 2014. One for June (exhibited at The Mall Galleries, November, 2014), one for October, and, one for May.

All of my work is numbered, this is piece 612.

Mostly Uninvited 801

Cressida Bonas by James Peltekian. Sorry about the flash, it was late at night.

The picture was taken from Evening Standard Magazine (29.5.15), found on a train.

If You Are New Here: This project started (January 2015) with me sewing junk-mail faces onto a big woollen blanket. It has since expanded to include images from magazines and leaflets, I find in bins and on public transport. ‘Uninvited’ was the working title, until I changed it to ‘Mostly Uninvited’. Unless I tell you otherwise, take it that the portrait was part of some junk mail, pushed through my letterbox. I will always credit photographers, illustrators, designers and the faces, whenever possible. All of my work is numbered, this is 632. If you search this number in ‘Categories’, you can find out about the other faces.
