I finished up the covers on these little books I had bound awhile ago. Covers are made of canvas with sewn embellishments, beads, a button. The shoe is a Vintage whatever. Poppy leaf. Old photos from the twenties. Bits of lace and velvet.
They are 3 by 3 and 2 1/2 by 1 1/2. Ten pages of Strathmore paper. The pearls were from my Mom's bead collection and as I worked Mom filled my heart. She sewed clothes, made angels, made Christmas bead ornaments. How I miss her.
Meanwhile I tried to post about my poetry chapbook but discovered that the press was on vacation for the week so didnt want to publish links until they were back. Even the amazon site for the book says no copies available. Not sure if that relates to the press being on vacation. So, coming soon a post about my little poetry chapbook.
