Last Round of the Round Robin

The last round of the Round Robin! This is the spread I made in Maria's book which is on the way back to Sweden. The theme was "Secrets in her handbag" and I imagined that this bag contained keys of houses where the owner of the bag would always be very welcome.

I also received my book and I am so inspired by those who worked in my book: Maria, Anke, Shakti and Mika. My book travelled to Sweden, Germany, Spain and came back to Holland safely! A real gem. I might make a special box for the book.
The Round Robin was organised by ABEurope, a Yahoogroup for Altered Books.

Three little books

A few weeks ago I made these little books. I had some pastepaper that I had marked with 4 inch blocks (10 cm) in pencil. I cut those blocks out (2 together forming a spread) and sewed them.
One of the books was covered completely in booklinen, the first time that I did this. The books were a little exercise and fun to make!
