One of my favourite blogs to visit is TDoesWool. I'm no kind of knitter, but the photographs are always subtle and delightful, the posts generous and thought-provoking and my lack of knitting prowess is no handicap to enjoying it. A recent post was about kusudama flowers, linking back to another lovely blog, twoandsix, where there are yet more links to sites which offer the instructions for making these little paper flowers from book pages.
Despite the fact that I am generally fairly impatient, I did obey the instructions to wait until the glue was dry (sigh) on each 'petal' and was glad. I made a couple of flowers from some lovely soft old faded paper from a wrecked French novel that I've had for years (tried to read it - lost patience). Another one is a page from the Daily Express Community Song Book of 1926 - the songs are mostly so xenophobic and un-pc that they shouldn't really see the light of day! While the glue was drying (more sighing) I made some stalks for them out of rusty wire, twisted here-and-there to look like tendrils.
If you've got ten minutes to fill, I'm sure you would really enjoy making one of these little flowers - you might want to try using more colourful paper than I did and have a vase-full of blowsy blooms on your work table. Oh go on, have a go!
