Should auld acquaintance be forgot

Una cose bona

Not paying any attention to our recent undoings, we´ve kept calm and moved along;  using some delicious paper found at a nearby shop, old tea bags, used kraft paper and other found materials, we assembled a tidy little treat for a dear friend of mine who lives just across the channel.  It turned out beyond my wildest hopes; well, that´s a lie really, as of course the design was conceptualised in advance, but it was truly the best thing we´ve yet fabricated.

The design is a rather simple three-hole pamphlet stitch with a papered cover board and internal cover sheets made from the kraft paper.  I would like to try putting a few together with some scrap paper we found that´s been printed on one side and see how they work as notebooks.

When it was finished I felt as if I was looking at my own newborn child.
