Claudia, my book-binding friend,
and I spent the day together.
I wanted to learn how to sew a coptic binding,
and she was willing to teach me.
Above is my practice piece.
I think this binding will become
my favorite method -
it is somewhat addictive.
This is the cover of my book
a simple paste board cover,
but I love it.
We got together several months ago
and just doodled around on watercolor paper,
and this is what I ended up with.
So, my assignment over the next two weeks
is to gather, cut, and fold my signatures,
procure my binding thread -
unsure as to whether I will buy or
dye perle cotton.
I look forward to constructing this baby!
