As you can see, I haven't been idle and the pages for my book of runes are gradually taking shape. Those above are almost ready to have various additions stitched in place - when I have worked out what they are!
At least half of the pages still look like this.
I haven't yet decided how to join the pages. They will be placed back to back and stitched together somehow. I just hope my measurements have been accurate and that they are all the same size - we shall see soon enough!
I have booked a place on another weekend course at Hawkwood College, near Stroud, in September. The tutor is Frances Pickering again (she makes the most delightful and exquisite fabric and paper books) and I loved the course last year so much that I booked for this year straight away. We will be making books again but learning different techniques from those used last year. All I know about this year's course is that we will be working in black and white plus one accent colour. The theme is the written word - poetry, a special book, a favourite poet or just some words which have special significance. It is all very intriguing and I am trying not to pack my bags already.
We have had some very helpful showers of rain in recent days but I know the things in pots will need some extra help, so I'm off to fill the watering can a give them a treat.
I hope to have at least one page completed soon - maybe next week?
