Fruity

One of my friends asked me if I would attempt to rescue her favourite cookery book which had fallen into disrepair. You can tell she is a keen cook, my cookery books are all on display in my kitchen in pristine condition. What follows are the before and after photographs of the project.

I used one of my photographs for the cover image and an Emma Bridgewater double sized wrapping paper for the end papers – it is spotted on one side and striped on the other which makes for a nice contrast and compliments the fruity colours on the cover. The glue wasn’t quite dry when I took the photographs so the paper is a bit wrinkly inside but it is now sitting in my book press and should dry out nicely. I hope she likes it – at least it will give a new lease of life to Delia’s recipes :-)

You may have noticed how I like a nice link so continue the fruity theme….

And finally, thanks to Dave Walker for this time saving, healthy eating advice.

And you really must check out Dunn’s latest post over at My Interesting Files. I borrowed this image from there but there are loads more to see – all very clever and funny.
