Times fly

Ooops..the time just running away.
I have done several things the last months - especially bookbinding and sketching. But I have also been very occupied with work, therefore the silence on the blog.

I'm very happy how this tree sketchbooks turned out.

Textile block printing

This weekend I have printed tea towels and napkins. I have used my hand lettering design that I used in my stone engrave project earlier this year, se my post letters-and-stone . 
To day I used some leftover of the rubber cloth used at the stone project, I simple cut out the 'Karlins Kitchen' design and glued it on a mylar film. Inked the rubber cloth and hand printed tea towels and napkins.
