Wow, Two Posts in one day! This is my post for WOYWW #159, which I'm joining at Julia Dunnits' Stamping ground. Why not follow the link in a few minutes, to see what everyone is doing today?
But if you want to see what else is going on here today, have a look at my Midsummer Morning pictures too!
And my desk this morning?
Two large, A4 (letter) sized Recipe Books, for Sami.
Both have covers that match, in papers by Chatterbox. However they then have contrasting bindings, in bright turquoise blue and zingy golden yellow. What is blue on one book, is yellow on the other - and vice-versa!
This project has been going on for a looong time, but finally we're getting near the finish. The pieces are all cut and ready, I have lined some fabric, to make blue and yellow book cloth (hence the iron in the background!). All I need to do now (she says, master of understatement...), is make the pattern for the binding holes, then stitch the bindings. They're going to be Fab!

And on the left, are the covers for a Wedding Guest Book, for Melissa.
The covers are in a lovely natural linen, with golden silk edgings. The silk is very bright and cheery, though it's a bit overshadowed in this photo, by the amazingly zingy recipe books!
This is another Project, as the book will have two sections, with different paper and design. The first section will be a medium weight paper, printed with a box layout, for guests to write their messages to the bride and groom.
There will then be a separator page, in a neutral paper that matches the linen, printed with "Photographs"; followed by a set of heavy weight pages, with glassine interleaves, to hold photos of the wedding.
Today I need to cut all the pages (so I'm off in a minute, to get started on that!).
I hope to have both these projects completed by the end of the week!
