I never really considered myself to be eccentric maybe slightly offbeat but tonight as I was heading to bed (yes ten o'clock on a friday night) I looked at what was in my arms and thought you batty old bird. I have brought to bed with me my laptop, my cellphone, the novel I am reading and a cup of tea in a lovely mug made by . I had to move the dog, Lucky, over so I could get into bed. But Maggie soon followed and curled up at the bottom of the bed. I am surprised Zoey did not join us but she stayed downstairs to keep Pat company. I love to unwind at the end of the day in my bed with all my "stuff". The reason for the laptop is I wanted to show off what I made today. I took a huge leap of faith and made this coptic bound journal. I will photograph the entire book tomorrow but my stitching is still very raw. I did not use Linen bookbinding ribbon because I wanted to limit my purchases. So the binding is not as rigid as it should be. I am very proud of myself because the only material I purchased was watercolor paper. I needed paper large enough that I could fold to make signatures. As much as I wanted to I did not but Fabriano paper. I felt I needed to make one journal successfully before I dared to purchase expensive paper. I do love the wallpaper and old piano music I used for the front and back covers.
