It seems I forget I have a blog sometimes :)

... and it seems that there hasn't been a lot of painting or crocheting happening around here, but I am always doing something with my hands, and lately that has been making books.  At first it was handpainted Moleskines, then I attended a workshop a couple of months ago to learn Coptic binding. 

I'm still practising, and experimenting with vintage map paper covers, prints of my artwork, and illustrations from vintage children's books.  Lots of fun!

 ... and I'm loving this song and video this week.  Enjoy!
