Even though I'm meant to be focussing on calligraphy items for the craft fair at Calke Abbey on 30th April, I'm easily distracted! Make 2 little concertina books with a funny little poem about logs and how they'll burn (thanks Mum for sending me the words). In the end I'm not that pleased with the colours - I did my trials on a darker blue paper where the writing looked better. Ho hum - I do know how important it is to trial on the paper to be used for the final piece, and yet still don't always do it.
Still - they're cute little books - and maybe someone will want to buy one at Calke.
