A written record

I have spent quite a lot of time over the past few days getting started and up-to-date with the masterpiece scrapbook. I realised that if I didn’t do it as I went along, it was going to be a mammoth task at the end.

I selected an album covered in recycled sari silk and with pages made from cotton waste sourced from a company who specialise in Fair Trade paper (and other) products:

The first pages have pictures of the squares representing the designs that will form my portfolio, along with a bit of text:

Then I go on to the twelve squares representing the permaculture principles:

Principles squares (there is tissue paper between pages, hence the ones on the right appearing through a mist)

And them I moved on to other squares I’ve made and ones from all my friends:

Squares from two friends, along with their messages

I’m really pleased with how it’s coming along, and I’ve had messages telling me there are more squares on the way so I’m sure it’s going to be a lovely record of the project. Oh and I should mention that a few people who can’t knit or crochet have just written (or are going to write) something to go in the scrapbook, so there is no need to feel left out if you can’t make something from yarn.

    • I will… my own square production has slowed as I have had a failure. One of my designs came out too big and I need to start again with it, which is always a bit of a chore 😦
