Bookbinding for Beginners

Yesterday, I attended what was to be a full day of workshops in Lexington sponsored by the Quilters Connection Guild. I had signed up for a bookbinding session in the morning though I knew nothing at all about the process.  It proved to be very interesting and here is the book that I made. This book has seven separate sections which are called interestingly enough "signatures." Who knows whether I will ever make another book like this, but I was intrigued by the many samples brought by the instructors, in particular some of the books made to commemorate various travel vacations. I might file those ideas away in the back of my mind.

After a potluck luncheon, it was announced that the instructor for the second session that I had signed up for was unable to be there. Truthfully, I was actually glad as I wanted to get home before the approaching storm.

 Here's another completed row from last year's Row by Row Experience 2015. It seemed fitting to work on this beach scene today after our latest snowstorm.  We received about six inches and the snow was again light and fluffy.

Finally, there is no joy in Patriots Nation as Tom Brady and the team will not be heading to the Super Bowl this year. :-(
