Well it's been a gentle week during which I've been working on my very own Skitchbook! Seeing as the universal engine didn't heed my plea for Hoola Tallulah's lovely giveaway, I got off my lardy rump n made my own. It differs from hers in that she used proper felt whereas I've used ScrapStore recycled fleece oddments stitched roughly together in wobbly imitation, but I'm quietly pleased with the result nonetheless and as usual obsessively snatching precious minutes in which to work on my new baby!
It is incredibly satisfying to put something like this together from scratch with whatever's to hand just to get it done. It still needs more work; some more detailing to the back cover and some fastenings. As my good friend Little Dotty Bird won the giveaway I'll be able to see the difference between the two in the flesh when it arrives and I'll try to maintain a veneer of happiness for her good fortune - no doubt she'll still frisk me anyway in case I try to make off out the door with it.
Thank you Hoola Tallulah for being so inspiring! xx
