Book Binding & Cartonnage

I joined the WABookbinders Guild, this year, and have enrolled in a couple of courses: Basic bookbinding and Box Making. I'm in 7th Heaven as it's all about cutting, gluing and sticking.
This is all in preparation for this weekend's Cartonnage retreat with Janie Hubble.

The MOTH is making me a simplified version, for Christmas.
Janie Hubbles's gorgeous chair: Version 1

Version 2. I'm doing mine in Christmas colours.

After-thought Heal Socks

I am still using up yarn by making socks.
This is my first after-thought heal sock. It's also my first attempt at making anklet socks. 
It needs a few ends stitched in and blocking, but I'm very proud of the effort.
