Another night out

Over the past few years I have become miserable and antisocial, stayed in, hardly ever went to birthday do or other things, became a bit of a hermit. Not now. Oh no!

I was out last week for my leaving do, and this week I'm off to a birthday meal and next week I have another birthday do to go to. Gosh I wish I'd been this popular when I was young and gorgeous!

In honour of Angie, whose birthday do it is tonight, I have made a book for her. I was shown how to layer plastic upholstery sheets to make bags, and I decided, as I do, to use it to make and cover a book. It works great. It looks brill. Sorry can't add a photo, present not given yet!

I will post pics of the second one I have done later, when it is actually finished, so you can see the basic idea. It is also a useful technique for making buttons. I will demo this too.

Sorry this is a bit of a dull posting, just realised I'd not posted for a couple of days and I thought I'd share the dullness that is my life.

I too am a hermit. Sometimes I think I should go out more but there's no real incentive. I don't have going out kinds of friends. Then there's the logistics...

Looking forward to seeing the book. You are a tease. ;-)
