Can you imagine my surprise when the postman knocked on the door the other morning, me... Still in my nighty and dressing gown..... He had a parcel.. For me, from nanagogo. The lovely Anne sent me these absolutely wonderful crochet fingerless gloves and scarf.. They are amazing and so beautifully made.
Anne had read my blog and sent me these wonderful items to keep me warm in the studio.. Thank you so much Anne I love them and can't thank you enough.x I've worn them already and they work, no more cold hands.. Hurrah!
Now for the work table.. Learning how to make handmade books..So exciting.. I love it.. I've used some of my old prints for the pages..
I don't know all of the correct terms yet, but I'm loving the process..I think that these are called folio's... I shall explain more after Tuesday when I learn how to do the next bit, and learn the proper names for the stages..
The other thing that I've been working on is another display for my work.. This one still has the pins in it, so keen I tried it out... Patience is not one of my vertues..Here is the finished stand... I'm quite pleased with it considering that its made from cardboard shoe box and some old fabric that I've nearly thrown away a dozen times.
To finish..... A picture of the fishing boats in the dock... Just down the road from where I live... Lots and lots of mud.. We have plenty of it around here.
