Summer has been keeping me occupied and it still is. Many plans and projects have been left at a standstill, sometimes deliberately, sometimes unintentionally, while something else has taken over. One of the forgotten thoughts is my Handmade treasures series. I am reviving it in this post hoping to get it going on a more regular basis now that we are heading towards autumn and even worse.
This treasure is my latest handmade flea market find, a book jacket of linen with a light cotton lining and embroidered rowan fruit on the cover. This is the kind of handicraft that could never pass unnoticed by me. Every time I discover something like this I am amazed someone would want to get rid of such a delightful item. All the better for us who cannot get enough of them.
The folds are deep enough to make the jacket suitable for both thicker and thinner books. Too bad I don’t seem to have any time for novels these days. Maybe there will be some use for the jacket in a few months when the season I don’t care to mention yet is again entangling us in a state of not that welcome blues.
