The Sketchbook



I went with the blotted blue and purple paper then chose one of my hand dyed embroidery threads for the Coptic stitching


Here is the finished book


and spine


A sample of how some of the pages came out. Remember Laura Kemshall's "Finish Me" journals from a year or two back? I can now work back into some of these pages as well. My hats off to Laura for all her  great idea, this also being one of them.
