It just has to be patterned paper - and this is Tim Holtz. Vintage Shabby - which I love. The cover is a textured paper which I bought at one of those 'fill a wallet' stands. It will have the year added on the front at some point. It will also have bells on!!! Yes really. I have a couple of bells on a split ring which will attach to the spine - so useful to then be able to find the book!!! Wobble the table, smack the shelf, and it will ring to say I'm here!
This is Rico PomPom yarn. I'm using Tunisian Crochet to make..... well its a thing! I tend to call these pieces Therapy work. Its an itch to scratch, either in terms of the need to get back in touch with crochet, or to play with a ball of yarn. I can't knit - well its more like pushing a snowball uphill - but lots of these lovely fancy yarns don't show how you can crochet with them. I've chosen Tunisian Crochet, because I can push the pom poms onto one side. It may turn into something, perhaps another cat blanket which the cat sniffs looks at and declares "you expect me to sit on that". But its bright and cheerful for these dull grey days of Winter.
