Remember the marbled paper?

Had a sneaky days holiday today and went out bookmaking......

This little book was the first one we did - it is tied in the middle.......

......inside the little book.  I  used some of the marbled paper to make the cover

This book is made in a similar way to the first, but there are pockets for tags on the front.  I used scrapbooking papers, but some people used handmade papers.

More marbled paper for the cover of this next book.....

it has end papers, and several signatures sewn together.  Thanks Anne for a lovely day and great tutorials.
May ATC swap with my mum (hers is on the left - the theme this time was Sparkle. 

Two ATCs swapped from members of the bookmaking club.

Log cabin crochet cat blanket finished.

Long stitch crochet cat blanket finished.

Happy 97th Clem....

I made this little book for Clem

He is now in residential care and last time I visited he was wondering how the bulbs were that he planted last autumn....

... so I went and took lots of photos.....

And here is Clem - not bad for 97!

Hi Mum - its on its way - April ATC theme of Vellum....

Here's an ATC I made for bookbinding group swap

We marbled lots of paper at Bookbinding group

And made a mini book from one sheet of paper, carefully folded and cut.

April ATC swap and other stuff...

My mum and I are still swapping our monthly ATCs.  Mine is on the left with a stamp of Times Square that I bought in NYC last week (Shop called the Ink Pad I think).

Men's crochet cowl.  I finished one on the plane for my son and forgot to take a photo - hey Tom can you be my model and send me a photo please!

Happy Birthday Lex. Are you noticing a theme here - I had to use that stamp again.

As I spent my 60th birthday in New York I wasn't home to make a cake.  Little H helped me eat this on our sewing day - check out what we made on Cotton Confetti.

Keeping Warm

Tinkerbelle wouldn't go out until I made her a little path

We had quite a lot of snow

I finished this crochet house blanket - it has 9 house squares and a border.
