I did find time to make a sketchbook for Module 1 - ‘Drawing Studies’. Can’t use a boring old bought one, can I? This was made from a battered sort of box thing that a book was delivered in, sprayed with the last of my black spray paint, which is why it is a bit patchy, and then a dollop of gold webbing spray - love that stuff. The stitching is yet another variation of a running stitch binding.
The little one is a dos-a-dos I made a while ago, which I’m using for the notes for Module 3 - ‘Fabric & Stitch’ – which has two teachers, so I’m using one end for Sue’s notes, the other for Terrie’s. I said that all books find their use eventually.
Speaking of books – I'm getting to the end of the CT sketchbook.

The bit on the right, which is a rubbing of it, worked much better.
