Guess Where I Am?
I am not in the middle of this mess, in hiding. I am in the midst of putting all of this stuff away....Again...You would think that I would learn to clean up as I go, after a while...
I pretty much have it down to what you see there...Not counting the jewelry findings that need sorting.
So I decided I needed a break. I saw a small pad of graph paper on my desk...
Off on another tangent.
Bookbinding. At least it is a style that I haven't tried before.
I just used fancy card stock and sticky gold paper to do the binding. That part is cheating.
What I really wanted to try was sewing the paper together like a real book.
I did it. It's not perfect, but not too bad for a first try.
I made five stacks of pages. and sewed them together down the center.
I will not go into details. I am not fit to teach this. Not yet anyway.
You could do this in mini and some people do....I won't be doing it. I admire the patience of the people that do.
The whole thing took me less than an hour....Now that I know that I can do it, I am happy. I can continue cleaning the Black hole that is my workroom.
Back to real work.
See you tomorrow.
