My back pages
It's decades since I've done anything that could be described as 'craft' - but last weekend I went on a bookbinding for beginners course at the City Lit in Covent Garden. It was great. These items above were all my own work - paper cut and folded, covers designed, spine and cloth binding added, pages sewn, end papers pasted, all by my own fair hands. What about that!
There were nine of us in all, plus our tutor, the unfailingly patient and cheerful Sue Doggett. The photo below is of our collected works through the two days. It's the first time anything I've made has been exhibited since primary school. Come to think of it, not sure I got to that level of achievement even in primary school. So that makes it a lifetime personal best.
