Some of the 365

About 70 of the  handmade books
As you know if you have been checking in here for awhile that I am making 365 books this year.  I meant to take a photo of the first 50 but now I am on number 93 and I thought I had best get busy and  take a shot.  As you can see they are all different sizes and each has a different binding stitch.  I am averaging about three each day.  Maybe I will meet the goal early at the end of the summer.  Who knows and who cares.  I have months to go but I sure am motivated.  Most of the books will need the interiors done and they will be but that is a different goal.

I am pretty excited because last week I sold one of my tunnel books.  This morning I finished another one and it already sold by 10:00 this morning.  Yikes!  I will show you another one of the tunnel books tomorrow.
