Just a quick post today, I've got my hands full. Sewing, folding, gluing, picking lint from my hair etc. You know the story. The leather bound book is almost finished; just a little more sanding and gluing down the endpapers and it's done. I think I need to make another one, it was great to work with leather again. No need to worry, I'm still working on some linen books for my shop too.
Ages ago I told you that I got some very special things from Karen when I met her in London, and that they'd deserve a blog post of their own. Well, this is the post. Details only, since blogger is apparently scared of pincushions and doesn't want me to upload photos of such things. I hate it when it happens. But these things I love:
I know I've linked to Karen's shop and blog a zillion times, but she's just too great for me to not give her a shout out when I can. Of course there's always the possibility that her amazing work is news to you, so hop over here and here. And I've got good news for the people who already are fans of hers too; due to the current value of pound the prices are really, really reasonable!
Ad talk over. But I do love her work. A lot.
