A book binding workshop

Last Saturday there was one more In My Closet workshop by sweet Anna in her cozy kitchen.
This time it was something we had expected for some time now.
A book binding workshop by the talented Eleanna of Aouts-pins blog.
As book binding needs patience, skill and time we were invited to split into two groups, one on Saturday and one on Sunday. I chose Saturday, made some olive muffins and went happy that it would be great! And it was!
We were eight people. Eleanna was the teacher, and Anna was the hostess who made us amazing frapuccinos and a great lemon sorbet!
The two ladies had arranged and prepared the book binding kits with all the needed tools and fabric and papers.
Also there were Georgia,Kikitsa of DIYMyDay blog, Elsa, Christina  of Celdeconail, and Angeliki of pocolocini.
And of course Vasso of metodahtilostovaso brought sweets!
First we chose the fabric we liked.
That's mine and then we were taught the technique!
Eleanna made things easy for us and we understood all the instructions.
The results were fantastic! We all made great notebooks.
Here's mine.
If you want to make one just read Eleanna's blogpost here.
Anna and Eleanna thank you again for a great workshop!
But the weekend was not over.
On Sunday we went to see what the antique market had to offer at their flea market.





I didn't buy anything as I didn't find something to really really want!
Of course coffee with the family followed.
And then I made Chinese food at my wok! Delicious!
On Sunday evening I attended an amateur group theatrical performance at our neighbourhood church where many old colleagues and mothers of former pupils took part!It was a hilarious play and we really enjoyed it!
