for Textiele plus .
I finished some of the knitting pieces so now I have more time for other things.

The art journal for the FAF swap is finished it was so much work but it is turned out very nice
this is a very great way to bind a book .
I used plastic mesh a flat piece you can cut it up in little pieces it is firm enough to hold its shape without being so stiff it is easy to work on .
