eeek!

Today one of my best friends gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. So far I've only seen a picture of him (oh the wonders of technology!) so I really can't wait to meet him. I'm very excited!

Oh, and I made some books (for a change)


This is the stitching on the text block, I always feel like its a shame to cover it up...


Buttonhole binding (from one of Keith Smith's books). One with a hard cover and one with a soft(ish) cover...




And the sewing creates end bands, which I really like.

Perhaps tomorrow I will try and make a book for the baby (do babies need books?) I hope he had a lovely first day in the world :)

*oh yay!!* Tis the season for babies :) So lovely. Yes, I think he would love a book!

Your latest creations are just exquisite!! I too love the way that the stitching creates end bands. Gorgeous! x.

I can't think of a more worthy recipient of a beautiful book than a little baby with a whole lifetime ahead of them.
