Last, But Not Least- Little Book...



Well, it's June and the deadline for the Little Book Swap is fast approaching. So I'll mail mine off this week. Here is the last of the three. This "Pieced Paper Friendship Book" measures about 3" square, and it is filled with painted and stamped pages. It's pamphlet-stitch bound with floss, and has beads and charms added to the thread. These were such fun to make. You can see other swap books at Lenna Andrews' Creative Swaps site.












And speaking of books, I found a lovely keepsake one full of nostalgic illustrations at a book sale recently. We were riding our bikes around the charming village of Melrose, FL, when we saw a sign for the sale at the library. This hardback copy of "Heirlooms from Loving Hands" by Sandy Lynam Clough (Harvest House Publishers, 1998) was only $1. I couldn't resist for that price.
