On Saturday Anna (my bookbinding tutor) ran a one-day class on Crossed Structure Bindings.The photo shows what I had at the end of the day. Quite pleasing and I will use the technique in future. The process was originally intended to replace covers on old books where the covers were beyond repair but now it is used for decoartive purposes. A lively class of 12 students.
At the end of the day, I got in my car and drove to Sunningdale to stay with my daughter. The reason being that I was required to finish pruning the apple tree and other shrubs in their rented house. It was a lovely warm evening spent in the garden watching someone else cook the barbeque! Since Ruth had a full Sunday planned, I got out into the garden at 7 am and had the pruning finished by the time the family appeared. The programme was
a) View the house they have just bought at 1030 - very nice It has two conservatories!!!
b) 1100 walk round Savile Gardens I have not been there for about 10 years and the family had never been there. Now it is 5 minutes drive from their rented house - and five minutes walk from their new house!! Actually in their rented house, Windsor Great Park is just up the road by 100 yards!! The Savile Gardens were really good and a photo or two are shown below.
