I recently made this long narrow book (5" by 13") meant to resemble a Tibetan Prayer Book. I made a couple of mistakes, such as cutting the cover too large. The paper is purchased handmade Lokta paper. It is made from the root of the Stellera chamaejasme plant.
Lokta paper was made in Tibet for centuries. The practice declined but has been revitalized by Paper Road/Tibet. It is now made in Lhasa and Nepal. I hope to fill the book with uplifting quotations and monoprints or collograph prints.
I am still trying to knit. I bought a new color yarn and hope to make a scarf. I have already goofed and mistakenly added on two extra stitches. I will only use the knitting stitch as when I knit/purl I am bound to make mistakes.
Many of my paper wall hangings are falling down. The string which I glue onto the back has been slipping out, sometimes after several months of hanging. I tried a new method and a different glue and will have to wait and see. I think it might have been the YES paste which doesnt seem to be drying thoroughly. It is discouraging. I have used this method of hanging for years. Oh well.
