Homage to the Book

I love the written word and I cherish books, as objects and as channels of communication across vast distances of time and space. This little "book page", Homage to the Book, is all hand-embroidered with a tiny sewn bowl "illustration" at the bottom right.  That little bowl is filled to overflowing with stitches...the knowledge and outpouring of countless generations, handed down to us, simply and gently on the pages of a book.


  1. This is so beautiful, Patti! I wanted to let you know I added your blog to my list favorites on my blog. :)


  2. Thanks so much Silver Rose! I love sewing on paper!


I'm happy to hear from you...comments and questions are welcome!
