I had a super Christmas day with the family. My sister cooked a wonderful meal which was enjoyed by all. It was entertaining watching the children open their presents and see the reaction on their faces from pleasure to puzzlement to frustration and so on!
What are my plans for 2013? I am really enjoying making notebooks and journals so much that I have a whole new variety of them planned for the coming months. I have been buying lots of new fabrics and I shall also be using vintage or recycled fabrics too for the covers. I have been experimenting with the stitching for the open spine, teaching myself how to do the Coptic or chain stitch. I have also been exploring making the open spine more decorative, using ribbons and linen tape.
Well that’s enough of my news – I hope that 2013 brings you everything you wish for and if you do decide to come over to the UK this year do get in touch.
All the best and have a wonderful New Year!
