These are my new crocheted bits for what I hope will be the beginning of a local coral reef. Later this month I will be demonstrating at the local flower show and hope to interest other "hookers" in joining me to make this a truly community venture

second journal. This is larger and has removable pages. It makes a pretty fancy sketchbook, will I have the nerve to draw in it? Of course I will. The pages are removable!!!

detail of the paper cloth cover. I glued scraps of paper to fabric and covered the surface again with glued on tissue paper. The glue dries to a great shiny finish.

Inside the sketchbook are an assortment of pockets for tags,cards etc., and I have used A4 drawing paper, coloured pages and paper with interesting textures. The front page is just for show and is a cgi of a phote of honeysuckle!
