This has been my work table in the past week.
Bits of a pair of books. They're recipe books, A4 sized (letter size) and have matching cover papers, but the spines and insides are in contrast. I've posted about them before (and on my Facebook Page too).
Basically they are in blue and yellow, but where one book has blue, the other has yellow. Thus the separator pages for sections of the books are blue in one and yellow in the other; the bellows-type pockets in the folders at the front of the books are blue in one, with a yellow flap, but the other way round in the other book; the spine of one book is blue bookcloth, but yellow on the other.
I've been sewing their bindings
...attaching ribbon bookmarks to each section
...and stitching in a ribbon which will keep each book closed.
It's still a Work In Progress, but I'm almost finished now. Both books have been sewn/bound and I am now working on finishing off the covers and attaching these, along with the folder sections, onto the fronts of the bindings (the back pages are attached already and under weights).
I didn't actually work on these today - in fact, I've done nothing since last Thursday, as we were away at the weekend and I had "doing mummy jobs" to do on Monday/Tuesday (it was my mum's birthday on Monday, so we had a family lunch, then yesterday she had two appointments that I had to take her to). And, just to make sure I got nothing done... I picked up a cold from James (he brought it home from his weekend course) and it started last night. So, very little sleep and felt really and truly rotten all day today. I think colds affect me more now, because of my asthma and the problems I still have with my upper back. What is "just a cold" to most people, can be a real problem for an asthma sufferer; and then I often have slightly gummy ears, so the cold has affected them today and made me feel a bit sick and giddy.
I'm okay though and hope for a good night's sleep and to be able to get on with these tomorrow. Hopefully, they will be finished by tomorrow night!
So, just a bit of catching up in Lizzieland! I hope to be back soon, posting regularly. I still owe you all the final part of the Longstitch Journal Tutorials...
