The amigurumi obsession continues.. what do you think this is going to be?

This is the sketchbook I made for my mother; I’ve meant to post this for ages. As with the other sketchbook I made for myself, it has a fabric cover and is filled with Fabriano 5 Liscia (hot-pressed) 210gsm 50% cotton paper. All the posts from South America (see category to the right) were drawn/painted on this paper. As you might be able to tell, it takes watercolours amazingly – nothing comes through the other side and after a couple of days the page on which you painted becomes flat again. If you’d like one made for you, drop me a line. These ones are 189mm/7.4″ x 122mm/4.8″, but you can have any size or fabric you want..
I’m travelling in South America and am hoping to post drawings and paintings from my travels to this page – starting with these photos of my sketchbook, which I made before coming away (I’ve made another for my mother which I’ll post on my return). This one was photographed on the roof of our hostel in Buenos Aires.
The paper is Fabriano 5 Liscia (hot-pressed) 210gsm 50% cotton paper – good for watercolours. [now it’s April and I can confirm the paper is excellent for watercolours – absolutely no colour coming through the other side and the paper warps very little.]
