Spring Fever journal

Hand made, one of a kind. Fabric recovered hard-cover book. Six signatures of blank white drawing paper with the first page of every signature being blue card stock. I used dark brown eyelets as well. Carefully hand stitched with black linen waxed thread. Coptic stitched to lay open flat. End pages are a flowery cotton fabric also.
I loved this Alexander Henry design and had to use it for a spring time journal. Lots of fun to make and really one of my best journals to date! :)

You are doing really nice work! This journal is, of course, gorgeous--the color choices, the stitching. I am about to teach myself coptic stitching, and hope that it comes out (almost) as nice as yours!

Thanks, Mary! I must say, there is a pretty steep learning curve...I've come a long way in the year or so I've been doing the coptic stitch. Let me know how it goes! :)
