And then there were three...

I'm on a roll...and finished off the other two "Easter/spring flower" books.


One a "Forget-me-not" book encased in a matchbox adorned with forget-me-nots and decorated with silk ribbon and a ceramic button.


The book has another wrapped and embroidered jacket. One of the challenges I have set myself in this project is to only use things I've got already as it seems pretty pointless trying to raise money and then going out and buying new stuff. So I was delighted when I found these little sequins... not quite forget-me-not colour but very pretty and spring like so I think they work.



The third book in the set is a "Primrose" book


In a box also decorated with ribbon and a special button...


And another embroidered wrap around cover.


Which completes the set of three... Daisy, Forget-me-not and Primrose. I just hope the recipient likes them!


I do feel these little books are rather dominating my blog at the moment... but then they are rather dominating my life! So very sorry if you've had enough... but I've still got 37 more to make! There will be another one for the shop by the end of the week.

  8. These are all gorgeous! Do you live in a sort of time-warp with three times as many available working hours than everyone else?!

  12. Had enough? Are you mad? I am loving these tiny treasures! I think it's a brilliant ethos to make them from what you already have. xx
