I spent today running up to Grand Rapids so I could visit the Tandy Leather Company and got some really great scraps of leather. It's an hour drive to GR from Battle Creek and I hate making the trip but it is so much more expensive to order leather and they I would have so much leather that I could make enough for every citizen in the state of Michigan. On my way to Tandy I stopped at my favorite book store, Schedulers and walked out without a single book. It is a sad sad day when there isn't a book I need in the entire store! Trust me I looked hard but for the first time ever I just wasn't in the book buying mood maybe I had a fever?
Now for the fun photos...
|Some of the new colors of leather I got for book covers, Personally I prefer the muted colors but I got asked for brighter colors from the kids so here they are|
|Here are the 36 sets of book guts, I hope to get them stitched together tomorrow.|
These are the books once they have taken a bath in the coffee and dried.
