By the way….
My blog is worth $358,482.90.
How much is your blog worth?
Diane – i just checked my Blog Surfer and saw that you posted this. I swear I don’t just sit here all day hitting refresh, hoping for a book picture :)
Anyhow, I really like this type of binding, though I see that it’s quite painful to the one doing the binding.
I love Autumn, or at least the idea of Autumn and the leaves. It seems as though our Autumn (Pennsylvania) has gone from Summer to Winter (25 degrees this morning), barely pausing at Autumn.
Ahhh.. the lovely leaves covering the lawn. beautiful and idyllic view. :)
Your pictures are beautiful! I miss the Fall so very much here in the desert. We are still trying to move out of the 90’s. Enjoy the colors and air :)

SW – I had forgotten about Blog Surfer – I don’t use it but will do so in future! Glad you like the book, the red spots inside aren’t blood….
I am dreading winter, I hate being cold…
Jon – It is idyllic – unless you are the one who has to pick the leaves off the lawn!
Debbie – I have scoured your blog looking for a clue to where you live because if it is still in the 90’s I’m moving in with you!
I’m glad to see I’m not the only one still searching for their “talent” in life.
As a suggestion, there is a site called etsy.com that I love for buying “crafty” items. It’s a great site because it really has amassed a huge group of quality artists together.
Hi there! Glad to read you are back blogging!
It’s funny you should mention Etsy, I was checking it out only yesterday! You are right, they do sell lots of wonderful handmade crafts – including books.
i hate curved needles too. i just end up using regular needles and they are fine by me.
i really like the paper on this, very different from your usual posts.
and you should definitely check out etsy. even post some of your wonderful items there. [i am a but partial since i also list on there. and your items would do really well!]
It is a fun paper, I got it in the US.
I am very glad to hear it’s not just me who struggles with curved needles!
I am going to check out etsy. Even if I just put a few books on there to see how it goes….
oooo wow the book is positively electric Diane!!!!!!
Love the colours and shapes……..very neo geo…..
I don’t know how you can use that needle….too many memories of darning ballet pointe shoes for me :0….yes I can understand your suffering :)
those photos are positively gorgeous…..it looks like paradise…and those colours are divine….sometimes I wish I could paint landscapes….when I see photos like these :)
It is a fun book isn’t it! I do like these jolly modern papers. This one is supposed to be Christmas wrapping paper. Doesn’t strike me as being particularly festive though although green and red are I suppose…
We had high winds all through the night so the trees are now looking very bare. My garden has even more leaves covering the lawn – especially as gardener didn’t show. I just hope I don’t end up having to pick them up…
Have you never painted landscapes? Is it a different skill set or do you just prefer doing portraits?
Cool leaves. As for that book cover…Picasso?
Ha! Gardener has just been and blown all the leaves into the river – saves picking them up I guess!
I thought Miro or Klee….
haha …twittering Guernica perhaps……
I have a landscape to start on asap (commission) theme Africa
but have been procrastinating….I just love doing portraits :)
Oh yes! I remember you posting photographs you were going to use as inspiration. That should be a beautiful landscape Kim, I’m dying to see it!
