Kate a couple of weeks ago she had something similar but the outer cover was like a book cover. Some of the 'Ladies Who Lunch' were there and wanted to have a go at making one. So as I'd done the other one I sorted out how to make the one with the book cover. When the LWL met up for our monthly playday we did this project. I forgot I actually had my camera with me or I would've taken pics of what everybody did. Basically we used a hardback book and took the innards out and made the concertina folder bit. We didn't have time to decorate the book cover, but I'd already done mine as I thought it would take too long on the day and if I didn't finish it that day it may have ended up being another UFO! The technique I've used for my book cover I found on Youtub and is one of CapricornArtist73's techniques. We also made some 'bobbins' mine still have to be embellished.
Pat made me an absolutely beautiful book for my birthday, which was in July and Tracey made me a gorgeous little chipboard 'hangy'.
Spent a lovely day in Manchester on Saturday with Suzanne, who is one of my oldest friends. I treated myself to a vanilla slice in Kendals and bought a lovely long-sleeved black top and a black sleeveless cardi - not a colour I usually go for.
