The little exposed spine, blanket-stitch book is finished. It is so sweet.
How lovely it is to get so much pleasure out of just making a little book!

What is lovely about this binding is
that the whole book at every opening lays perfectly flat.

Thanks Fiona, I had intended it to be a bit "softer" to look at than this but I am happt with the mechanics of the book, if you know what I mean.

Canberra beckons, I'll be up at 4am. The CCS vivacious versals workshop is this weekend and I am pretty excited about the program. We're working on paper, canvas & illustration board so we will all have a bit of fun. Have yourselves a lovely weekend too. x g

Hi Gemma, have just had a lovely wander around your blog. Love what you do - from the sophisticated calligraphy which is totally enviable to the delight you take in binding a beautiful book. I love this blogging world where the viewer is invited into your art life to take a peek. A treat.

Thanks Susie. I must tell you, not long after we settled here we framed those three gorgeous works of yours ... I'll take a pic and post them here so you can see how stunning they look.
