I've been at home all day today. It started with Sounds of the Sixties on Radio two this morning, then the Graham Norton Show. Then I caught up with Corrie on the computer.
Lily cat is looking a bit perkier, he is responding to the medication, but hates it when I syringe the medicine into his mouth. His poo problem is getting better, and it looks like it's almost normal. Trouble is he always wants to go in the early hours of the morning, usually choosing the litter box in the bedroom. The smell wakes me up and I have no choice but to get out of bed and deposit the poo in the bag downstairs outside the back door. I have six litter boxes dotted about the place, this is mainly for Lily as he gets a bit confused and needs to go quickly. Don't you just love these oldie cats when they start to lose their marbles, ha ha.
I made another book cover, this was intended for a note book the same size as the last one, but when I put it on it was a little bit too tight a fit, and the stripes went all wobbly. So I found a slightly smaller book without a spiral spine and it isn't hardback. I had to stiffen the cover with a piece of cardboard. Looks fine though.
I inserted a piece of black elastic in the seam top and bottom on the back cover, as I was sewing it up. This can be pulled over the front to keep the book closed.
You could cover any type of books like this, not just note books. You could do diaries, address books, photograph albums, manuals, anything that you want to look smart. You could also make a matching pencil case if you have enough fabric, or stitch a pocket on the inside, or stitch a piece of ribbon into the centre of it for a book mark. Have a go.
Have you seen dogs like this. This film cracks me up, enjoy a larf.
