Rest

on Etsy
The rest of my Gocco creations. No matchbox this Monday. Tenosynovitis is my excuse. Matchboxes are too hard to make with a brace on. Hopefully I will find other ways to entertain you while my wrist recovers and I get some badly needed rest.

Gocco printed longstitch notebooks

 
I listed these on Etsy ages ago, but never found the time to blog about these more than a sneak peek's worth.
The covers are recycled kraft cardboard and the antique illustrations of lips and of Myrmeleon libelloides (some kind of antlion! what? I never knew antlions were insects. well, I don't know if I knew antlions existed until I found this illustration.) are gocco printed with dark brown ink. Both kinds of books have 72 white pages and they're sewn with waxed natural linen thread.
4.3”x5.9”x0.2”(10,8x15x0,5cm)
These make me happy. I hope they do the same to you.
