handmade paper

handmade paper

By popular demand (well, one person demanded), I leave you with a picture of the handmade paper the children made at the workshop run by the Plant Craft Cottage at the Royal Botanic Gardens.

We're heading off for a few days R&R ... see you later.

That paper is gorgeous.
As are the little nativity animals further down the page - I'm going to add you to my bloglines so I don't miss anymore of this prettiness.

I want to lear how! The paper is so nice. Soft colours.
But an actual commercial paper making plant smells awful!

How did they get such beautiful shades? My children did that Plant Craft Cottage a few years ago and before that I did a whole day's workshop. However, I still have it all in a drawer as I don't know what to do with it - any ideas?

Those colours are exactly the shades I wish the walls in my house were painted. Soft and rich and very welcoming.

Everything here on this blog is just lovely. I always want to stick my hand through the screen and feel everything.
Have a lovely holiday.

I'm finally getting caught up on your blog. I always look forward to seeing all the colorful pictures, and being inspired by your creations.

I crochet, but would like to learn to knit. Is there is good web site that would teach me how to do some basic stitches? Do you think if I learned some basic stitches would I be able to make some of the fruit? Or would I need to knit for a while to be able to make those?
