I have a lovely friend whom I met at Chard U3A more than a year or two ago. We get along really well – in fact, we get on so well that often people think we are sisters hence our nicknames for each other: Little Sis and Big Sis. As you can imagine, our siblings are confused when they see a birthday card addressed by one of us to the other!
We first became friends at the Chard U3A Craft Group and we both still have an interest in arts and crafts. We try to attend a workshop together when one of us is visiting the other. If we don’t manage to find a workshop to go to we will spend a day doing a craft-related activity. During my recent stay with her, we made handmade books. Little Sis had used the technique previously and was keen to share it with me. When I discover how to add pages to this blog I shall try to type out a tutorial for making the books. For the moment, however, readers will have to be content with a photograph of the books that we made.
It’s lovely to have a friend with whom it feels completely comfortable to do anything… or nothing. I feel very lucky to have one such.
