Curse Is Broken!

I have finally finished one of the Carol Berg books.  Here are photos of the tome I bound for my dear friend Stacy.  This is book one - Flesh and Spirit.  The covers are poplar with only a varnish, the beads are a Hungarian glass with red, green, and gold leaf.  The end papers are a hand made cotton with flecks of flower in them.  I really wanted a kind of natural feel for her copies.  I'm hoping now that I have one of them done the other 4 will not give me fits.

I also designed a tape lace bunny for Easter, but ran out of pins to keep working on it.  The pins got dumped down the air vent a week ago.  *sigh* Ah, well.


  1. Be free, pins, be free!
    Awesome book, by the way. Glad to see you got the better of it.

  2. It is a thing of beauty and a joy forever:) You are the best kind of friend ... someone who takes a part of herself and makes it into something beautiful to give to a friend. Thank you so much for the beautiful gift.
