Another tatty book, well loved and in need of some TLC. This is a bible lacking a complete cover, never mind the spine like my last book project! Bibles get very personalised with notes and highlights, so it can be a blessing to find a way to keep yours a bit longer ...
Looking good with a Hard cover again, but pages also need to be uncurled!
And finally, the book's owner said they would be pleased with 'blue fabric' and I think this looks very smart! I am just going to put it under a weight to help flatten some of those corners ...
Crabby came back from his holiday in the US and skipped gratefully back into his shell which i had dusted weekly in his absence ... well ok, maybe not weekly!
Anyway Crabby wants you to look at this book and go 'ooooh, that looks good' ... you can peep inside it HERE!
And see dear crabby, spread completely naked across the pages, he is obviously really pleased to be back in his shell of course! And in this lovely book you can find out how you make your very own crustacean! I can sign copies for you and will have some at my open studio event this year, but how about a free e-book for you now?
If you want to enter the give-away for the e-book leave a comment below, and tell me what's the most interesting thing you have found on the beach? For further chances to win, share on facebook and twitter and leave another post letting me and Crabby know of course. We will do the draw on Sunday. See you then! xxxx
So what's that on Mary's thumb? I have two thumb sucking addicts among my daughters, and Mary had it bad, that it until I took some sock scraps and ribbon and created a means to inhibit this little habit!
meet froglet! He is tied on with ribbon, but is only at best a good deterrent, as he can actual stretch off if the addict is finding the day a bit tough! Also, the addition of some nice fruity hand-cream, lovingly applied by mummy for those sucking blisters, can also help with that, esp at bed time. A bonus if you little one likes the smell!
And Daisy liked the idea of frogglet too,so that she asked for one, and wears hers at night!
Yesterday i did not post because i was far too busy having a fun birthday, but today i took a wonderful picture of a friend of mine and her daughter, and my box of pastels out ... This needs a lot more work of course! I have not used my pastels for a long time.
And as the sun went down and the chickens went to roost, I make myself a hot chocolate in one of my birthday presents, see beaker folk to get your own lovely mug!
This Cat purse is finished and given as a gift, I made it from lovely pieces of felted knitting, when a friend's blanket got washed wrong. The acrylic squares went slack and stringy but the woollen ones felted beautifully!
Edward Tulane again, this time wearing some red pyjamas, and looking very much like the little figure on the spine of my copy of Edward Tulane .. He will also get the frilled coat and trousers, and is off to cheer up a poorly little girl now ...
If you would like your own Edward, please contact me. I am making a purse for a birthday girl tomorrow, it is of her cat tinsel and here it is WIP!
