I bet many of you have the same “problem” as I do – I can’t even watch TV without doing something. I always have two baskets with me in the living room, one with ‘work in progress’ crochet, and one with yarn and crochet hooks. But I often bring more stuff, like thread and fabric scraps and beads, so it gets a bit messy. 🙂 And now it’s like a bomb site! But I have two books to show that it was worth it! 🙂
This one is about 6×9 inches, and it’s made with cotton fabric, silk, crocheted lace, pearls etc. And of course, my handmade paper.

Paper and yarn mixed together
A bit of poetry
And the back
I also made another twinchie book. Couldn’t throw away even the tiniest pieces of silk and lace, so I decided to make this:
Lovely little thing. 🙂 I sold quite a few of them, people seem to understand what they are, and that makes me happy.
I hope to finish another book over the weekend, a recycling project. There were too many papers in my craft room that I seemed to have no use for. Well, I do now! 🙂 It’s a great feeling to make something with unwanted things, or just junk. Which reminds me, I also have some envelopes from bills and stuff like that, and next time hopefully I will show you what I did with them. 🙂
Have fun! xo!
