That is beyond gorgeous. Did you make the cover too? I love coptic binding.
Thank you! I did make the covers - they're manilla envelopes. The back one isn't sealed up, so loose pieces of paper can be stored in it.You leave for New Zealand very, very soon.
I love this. You've just inspired me to try making one of these myself... maybe I'll gift it... or maybe I'll just keep it for myself. I DO need a new journal.
What a wonderful gift, it is truly beautiful. The embroidery especially. I would like very much to try my hands at binding a book, though I'm a little scared.
Wow, Lizzy! That is some notebook.
Thank you all for your kind words.
LIZZY this is beautiful, and while I will never be able to accomplish the level of your creativity, can you teach me how to bind a journal like this?!
Speak your piece.
