Attractive Handmade Decorations for the Home

Uncle Dan’s Book about Trees

Whilst waiting for Dunster castle to open on Saturday, we went into a second hand bookshop whilst waiting for the castle to open.  Not your usual second hand bookshop as there were lots of rare and 1st editions – way out of my price league.  However I spotted this book

and fell in love with the cover.  It’s very fragile and the pages are so thin, I daren’t turn them!  Unfortunately there’s no date on it so wouldn’t like to guess at it’s age.

It’s basically a book about the trees you can find in England.  Each page is a delight and gives a lovely potted history of each tree.

Reading the back page it seems that Uncle Dan produced a number of books – ‘An Uncle Dan book is always greeted with delight, because there is no doubt that Uncle Dan knows books – that children enjoy.  His books are full of colour and interest on every page’.  I might have to do some research into Uncle Dan – unless anyone can fill me in???

Moving on – whilst reading Vanessa’s blog – Do you mind if I knit, I noticed she’s written a pattern for Coats Craft’s website – a knitted rosette, and there’s a free pattern to download.  She showed some examples of one’s she’s made on her blog and she’s added them to bags – they look great.  Take a look if you get a chance.  There’s my next project lined up!

Bye for now!
