Making More Books

 Still making books. This one is for Beth of Sew Sew Art.
She was my inspiration for learning to make stitched books (post of Jan 26). 
Since she gifted me with her handmade sketchbook, 
I made this blank book for her. 

 She had made fabric beads & generously gave me a handful.
I told her they're color therapy. (A fine thing
during blizzards when one is confined to the indoors.) 
Now I will send 3 beads back to her via this book. 

Practice makes progress! 


  1. Tu deviens de plus en plus habile de tes mains , et tu maitrises toute la chaine , du cahier à l'œuvre finale .C'est toujours joli et coloré . J'aime beaucoup!
    (Passé une grande partie du week-end plongée dans ton livre ! trooooop bien !)
    Gros bisous !

  2. WOW! I am so impressed by your coptic stitching and it IS only a matter of practioce. Your stitches look better than mine. I love the bead detail as well -> must remember!! I look forward to being the recipient!! Thank you!!!

  3. Another beautiful book. I love the color, too. Bookmaking seems like a cozy and satisfying hobby for those snowed in days.

  4. More book building coolness. These look like fun to build and give-away to friends.

  5. Oh, I love these books! So elegant, beautiful. I can't wait to see some of your latest projects in 'person.' xx

  6. To miłe podarować komuś własnoręcznie zrobiony prezent i do tego tak śliczny. Pozdrawiam serdecznie.

  7. It looks tricky, but that's part of what makes it so pretty! Glad you're sticking with it. *Love the colored thread!*

  8. How special Rita. She will be thrilled. Book making mode looks good in you. 😉


Thank you for your comments! They mean a lot to me!
