Lovely collection of blank books. I want to try that method of gathering the long stitches together in the middle to create a kind of X. A very nice touch.
Hi Sheila, thanks a lot for writing!You always encourage me with your comments!!The X is actually a traditional embroidery.You can see how to do it in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04WvRNxrxGcThanks again!!
Thanks for the link - it was interesting to watch that stitch being done. I used to do a lot of embroidery and cross-stitch but I didn't stop to think this binding stitch was based on that. Makes me want to try it even more!
