A new book
After days of procrastination I finally sat down this morning and sort of got this little book together using coptic stitch.
Three books and some notes came out and although I made a small boo boo that I didnt notice until I had finished, it holds together and does what it should do, eg opens flat.
I cant believe it took me so long to gather my courage and get going with it.
It is a small collection of odds and ends and back ground pieces I have had lying around for ages.
Not sure what I will do with it.
I have all these books on how to bind books and although basically they say the same thing it is all done slightly differently. I did this stitch years ago with Adele Otteridge in my first forum class at Horsham and although I got out the notes and my sample books I still wasnt sure if I was doing the right thing.
Any way success at last.
It is cold!! I have had to find some warm clothes, I know it wont last but it is lovely to feel that I have to put on some clothes not take them off.
We havent had much rain though, about 2mm.
