Meanwhile I'd like to share with you the book I made yesterday. This is my absolute favorite so far. I liked the name of the book "I Dare You" so much and it was in such good shape I didn't have the heart to remove the spine. I made 4 signatures of 5 folios each which fit perfectly in the spine and then added end pages with one of the beautiful papers I showed yesterday. That means this is a sketch book with a great title (and the covers are embossed and really special) which has 80 pages and is approximately 5" x 7" . Because the signatures are sewn with a modified slip stitch the book lies flat when open.
Here are a few pix:

Sorry about the glare on the covers, but without shooting at that angle you wouldn't be able to see the wonderful patterned texture on it.
I really must get some of these books into my Etsy shop. That probably won't happen until after the holidays as it will take some time to make a few more and get the necessary pix and info.
If you are interested in any of the ones you've seen so far, email me for info and you can purchase one or more before they go up on Etsy.
Gotta go...Little Miss 3 is rolling a ball around in here and making me very nervous.
