My notebooks are now finished. I have managed to make three in time for my open studio weekends, I am very pleased with them the covers are woven and the paper was bought from TKMaxx so not sure what sort it is, it looks handmade.

We've been a bit touristy this week. I was stewarding at the South West Textile Group exhibition at Birdwood House, Totnes on Monday. We travelled down via a bit of Dartmoor and Bovey Tracey, had a good look round Totnes, lots of narrow streets, hills and fantastic individual shops. The exhibition looks great as well we had over a hundred visitors on the first day and lots of great comments.
Forgot to take any photos of the exhibition or Totnes.
We came back for one night and then were on our way to Stratford-upon-Avon, visiting Tewkesbury on the way. Lots of old buildings and an abbey.
We had lunch in the building below. In the evening we went to see The Merry Wives of Windsor at the RSC. Very funny done in modern dress. The scenery changes were amazing, there must be trapdoors all over the stage.
I think from now on I will live in Sand Bay on the Beach.

I have been experimenting with leaves on paper following the brilliant notes of Cassandra Tondro on this site http://tondro.com/green/category/ecoprint/ I have not used many leaves on each page as I am intending to make notebooks our of them that people can use. The paper was bought but I may try making my own again soon.
I looked out the window and there were all these men standing outside with binoculars and telescopes and giant cameras so I got my binoculars to watch the watchers, they were tracking the hoopoe again and I managed to see it in flight.
