Secret Belgians' and their Books

My friend Jo of Mystory, did a wonderful blog on our class, she sent me a picture of myself at the class with Rae Cummings our teacher.
So the process was not exactly as romantic as her post showed, on the other hand this is how I finished

I used watercolours in the stash, left by my husband. It makes a lovely, interesting cover I think and before I put the backboard and just had the stitching down the spine it was lovely with the edges of the first of the signatures being the watercolours and showing through the stitches.

I bought a painting at an exhibition of Ron Reynolds my teach, it is of North Fitroy and as I have just moved into the area, I felt I must have it.

He gave me this other little one as a present.

Had the Very Stuff group here today....my first entertaining in the new house, it was so great. My intention was to put a photo of them at this point, however I think I would be in trouble, they looked preety serious at the time.

We wandered around the corner in the middle of lunch to find some particular paper at Officeworks...the joys of propinquity.

How fun! Wish I had been there for the very stuff meeting. The book binding looks challenging. Great idea to use your hubby's water colors...
