Last Sunday's bookbinding session was so much fun. Celine, Chris, Jaime, Melodie, Rhya, Ros and I bound our books, chatted up a storm, and ate scrumptious treats all afternoon. The last few photos of the blue hardcover book is what I finished at the workshop. I was so smitten with the fabric covered technique that Melodie showed Chris that I had to try it out the next day. The grey covered book was the result. Still bitten by the bookbinding bug, I went for a third try with a book cloth. My mitered corners went a little bit better that time around. Now I'm trying to pawn these off to my family because I don't think I'll ever actually use them!

I love these! I have been looking for a cool journal to log my running adventures, but only wish I could find something as cute as these!
