A big thank you!!

August 10, 2013

Today I had a gift; not quite out of the blue but a gift nonetheless! I am delighted.  A few weeks ago I went to a  book making class not to be confused with bookbinding.  It was a day’s workshop of folding, gluing, stitching and threading.We made two or three little booklets.  I was really pleased with the result and plan to make some more and more important show my grandsons as well.  I was able to give them a taster last weekend and they each learned to make a gathering stitched into a little card cover.

Since, I have been buying some tools and some basic materials so that I can practice my new found skill.

Meanwhile a fellow blogger in a bid to encourage me sent me a few bits and bobs; to add to the stock.  I am very pleased and wish to thank her very much.  I am looking forward to some more classes and an opportunity to  practice.

Deidre I am particularly pleased with book … I will treasure it and use it !! Did you do the marbling on the papers?

    What you have in the marbled papers is scrap from the late and great Ann Muir and scrap from http://www.payhembury.com/Payhembury_Marbled_Papers/Marbled_Papers.html
    My marbling is too pale and dull for book work.
    You have a little book that is sewn up with out boards, it shows what sewing on tapes looks like before the boards go on. Hopefully I stuffed some ‘tapes’ in the envelope as well.
