So - following on from yesterday I made the front and back cover attatched them to boards and sewed the linings on. Then came the fun part stitching the book togther. This is the method I took from the Kemshall ladies tutorial on DMtv. I was so pleased with how it came together - totally down to Laura's teaching skills.
Lots of stitching went into the front and back of this book so I'm really happy that the binding hasn't let it down.
I have filled the book with lovely watercolour paper and will enjoy thinking of what to put in it. It's always good to have a blank book or two around for a special project so I won't hurry to fill this one.
The back is plainer but the lovely kantha stitching has given it a beautiful and tactile texture.
I feel some painted papers coming on next, my stash is getting quite depleted - a lovely excuse for a huge mess in the work room.
