sunday book






a while back i purchased a bag from peg and awl
it arrived in short order, bringing with it a small bundle
of scraps 
and this is what i did with htem.
waxed cotton canvas is pretty nifty.
i haven't completed the tackets.
but it's a pretty nifty
structure.
thank you alisa golden!

So tactile, my fingertips can feel it from here! Very cool.

Velma said...

grin! it feels lovely...and i found that button on the sidewalk, i believe, in town!

Valerianna said...

Nice!! Looks like it might have taken a bit of a thick thimble to sew!

aimee said...

Wow! It is even more lovely than I imagined :)

V- very cool way to use scraps - and such a strong book - could be used for sketching in the wild. B

Velma said...

valerie, it was much easier than i thought it would be.
aimee, grin
barry, it was one of those things that almost put itself together.

Really lovely. Love the colour. So earthy.

oh, Velma it's wonderful. Of course I love the fabric, looks like it could be dyed with kakishibu, some scraps. I need to try that construction. I received "the book" yesterday, it will take a month of Sundays to look through it!

Velma said...

thanks, dian, it feels really differernt, in a good way. old fashioned, even.
jean, i hadn't thought of kaki, but you're right. it does, however, feel like an army tent. grin, i hope you like it!

Nifty yes - but there is real appeal about this little book. It has character. I wonder if you are going to work into it at all?

Velma said...

susan, thanks for noticing. i will use it, for i see it as a substrate for a tale or a poem or a record or a map... not sure what, but it will become something. i'm leaving the cover attachment until i decide.

my guess is it is travelling far away with you? yummy color and feel from afar.

Velma said...

nancy, doesn't it look like it would fit in oz?

Beautiful book. I love when such beauty comes from a small bundle of scraps. This is my first visit, and I am happy to find you. I will return for another visit another day.

Velma said...

thanks, kim, i appreciate it. i seem to have a plethora of blog entries, eventhough i'm a pretty quiet sorta person!
