Ooooh, temptation...

An even 9 million things to do before class starts on Sunday, and what do I want to do??  Start another bookbinding project or two...



OY. 

I'd actually get better at it if I could do a bunch in a row!  As it is, I forget, by the time I've filled the current batch, and make some of the same mistakes.   I really like the way the  spine reinforcement looks, but  I need to tweak the concept a bit more...it should be just the same width as the sewn-together signatures, I think.  I like the bookcloth I used on the spines this time, but really ought to cover the edges of it with the cover paper rather than the other way 'round. 

It's SO expensive I don't want to waste it, so I'll be wanting to make smaller journals to use up the bits...

Besides, now I've got some lovely new watercolor paper I want to use...

Siiiigh.

Lovely!

I'm afraid I have about a half-dozen half filled journals. Not hand-made, though.
Well, girl, get 'em out and start filling them, it's fun!
