Oops! I missed the whole weekend!


I was cutting wood for Ethiopian binding and then it started to rain really hard and I fell asleep and the weekend was gone! Mostly, sort of true. It was a BIG rain--3 inches in less than an hour. Our Florida weather is back--full force. Its not pissing me off this summer like it usually does. Maybe its the rocking chair I put on the front porch so that I could watch the torrential downpour in the afternoons. I DO like that!

I finished the Bird Clicker Necklace and I really am pleased! I used some found stuff and coins and pearls and its very light. The great part is I still have 2 elements to play with from the same clicker!
Dan was throwing away this old edition of Dr. Zhivago. I tore it apart and changed the title to a more appropriate title for a journal. I am using the Secret Belgium Binding with a ruler. I LOVE RULERS! I've shown an interior shot before sewing in the signatures so you can see that I am only using a partial sheet of altas. I really adore the surprise and diversity of anything goes with signatures!
Fantastic Secret Belgium Binding Tutorial!
I've got to go out to the mosaic studio to purge work for my sale this weekend!
I am having fun.
My back feels Normal! I am SO grateful!

The bird necklace is darling and I LOVE that book binding technique! Would you ever consider teaching that?

And I know what you mean about the rain and naps!
