In todays post.........

After a day at work, where the children couldn't go outside because of the snow and rain, I had this parcel arrive and, oh boy! did it lift my spirits! It is my prize from Anna for the OWOH giveaway. She made a beautiful card, and sent some extras which included some handmade beads, threads and embellishments.

The piece de resistance was her 'scrapbook'.

The photos were taken in natural daylight but unfortunately because it was such a drab day the colours are not true, much brighter.

The book is really delish,

It's full of scrummy texture.

Don't you just want to stroke the pages?

A very big thank you to Anna, I am truly delighted with it.

If you want to know how Anna has made this book, there will be instructions in the next issue of Workshop on the Web by Maggie Grey.

Tonight I have been thinking about my next project which is to make a vessel for a Craft Arena workshop. I will be using Ancient Persian artifacts as my design source.
So in readiness for Thursday night, I have painted a few pages in my sketchbook.

At the last meeting of YE, one of the young girls was interested in learning about making Tyvek beads, so I have sorted out some Tyvek, photocopied a few articles and given her details of Carolyn's blog to help her on her way.
