On Sunday I spent a very happy few hours learning some basic bookbinding techniques in a workshop run by the lovely ladies of Paperla. Michelle took our small group through the intricacies of Japanese Stab, Hemp and Tortoiseshell stitch before trying to convince me I could make some origami pieces to embellish my books.
The books I loved doing, the origami I was a total fail and ended up in a fit of giggles. I can't tell you how much easier it is to learn these things if someone is there to teach you how. I'll need a bit more origami practice I admit.
Pretty sure I know what a few people are getting for Christmas this year...did is say Christmas?
