While my husband and his son sat through three consecutive games of Rugby on Saturday afternoon I busied myself with some more miniature books and have finally passed the half way mark... I feel like I've made 126 not just 26! It is my intention that every book is unique which does mean that when several people ask for the same theme, I've got to really put my thinking cap on.
This one is the first of two "Bird" themed books I've been asked to make.
I opted for two little machine embroidered bluebirds on the covers.
And a pretty little bluebird button on the matchbox.
This next one is for a keen gardener...
Who especially likes his pot plants.
I couldn't resist throwing in a miniature packet of seeds.
I've been asked to make three "music" themed books. For the first I've opted for the Shakespeare quote from "Twelfth Night"
And for the second one I've taken music ranging from Bach...
through to the Beatles (because I believe the recipient is a fan of both!)
But I haven't a clue what I will do for the third "Music" book yet
Of course, my biggest worry now is that the person who receives the first one wishes they had got the second one and vice versa... or maybe they will both wish they got the third one when I finally get around to it... Oh dear!!!
I've plans for a couple more before the end of the week and I'm gradually working my way down the list. I apologise now if you are still waiting and promise I will get straight back to work on them after my holiday... but for now I still seem to have the urge to clean and tidy. Five kitchen cupboards, the fridge and the deep freeze all got attacked today!
