For many years I have wanted to rebind my son's baby book. I purchased this paper made in Zimbabwe many years ago. Finally I took the time to complete this project. For the binding cloth on the edge I painted some canvas to match the paper's colors.
Inside is paper with Japanese characters on it. I liked the red with the cover. I never know if I am using the paper upside down or not. I made many mistakes when binding this. Some were correctable others not. I bind books infrequently thus forget certain things.
A box of paper scraps to use in my other project which is to make 100 Peace cards.
I have cut the paper and drawn the line from which the flags will fly. I seem to be very slow with both these projects. Also inaccurate and messy. They are taking forever. Is it just winter? Or age?
It is 20 degrees below zero this morning. If not for the poetry class I would not venture out.
