I cleaned up my bench and my favourite tools as they were looking a bit grotty because of my addiction to arts and crafts spray mount from 3M, I say addiction because I have weened my self off it a couple of times but I always come back, not even the hideous price of £21 can stop me.

For the way I construct end papers (‘made’) I mount a pattern sheet on top of a cloth jointed pair of scrap paper and a coloured sheet (I make the joint with tyvex) then I spray it with the heroin, I smooth it out with a bone folder, give it a quick nip and beautiful endpapers.

My tools are sitting on one of my favourite bench top tools.

This is a cutting board form Ikea I think it could slot beneath a cabinet. I use it for sewing on. I don’t use a sewing frame I cut out strips of tyvex and sew on to them.

When Grace was a puppy she chewed everything she could reach the house is filled with gnawed furniture. These are little puppy teeth marks.

These are some endpapers I have made for a book I am making I think I should continue with the painting.
