Love the white polka dots formed by the blank centres of this singles-record-cover patchwork.Colourful leftovers from a new batch of cord keepers!

Pulling apart books for the work I do has given me a real appreciation for their construction, page quality, spine strength, etc. I try to save pretty cover pages and have enjoyed making them up into spheres:
These 2 were made from pages from a garden book. The leafy green jug is a retro find for sale at the markets early next month.
Maps are often printed on cover pages, and so that's what this sphere is made from:

Felt-Tip-Pen Cross-Stitch Rabbit and Paper Sphere:
I've had some time to do some paper work over the past few days.
I've been longing to try a cross-stitch pattern on book print and enjoyed my first quick attempt.
The sphere is one of many I made a while ago. Inspired by How About Orange, I made this one from book cover pages.

I bought some vintage hand towels to use as floor cleaning cloths. I don't want them confused with my genuine hand towels, so I doodled with some black embroidery on the edges to id them! Quite liberating to stitch when it doesn't matter too much how it turns out!

Pretty, pretty pink roses - a gift from a friend.
Some more petals in silver bowl to dry out for a while. [Our climate is too damp for pot pourri]
Lovely to enjoy them for a while longer!
