Pink and Green

Two posts in one day πŸ™‚

I made another couple of handbound / handmade books up in my shed this afternoon, to finish off my WOC DT project for this week..

I did record a video for it once they were made, and once I uploaded it realised it had no sound… so deleted it and will re-record another one this evening.

Here is the first of the two books.. a lovely pink fabric book… my daughter bought this fabric for me for christmas, it was part of a fat quarter bundle and I loved this piece..
