practicing restraint

So, when do you know enough is enough?  Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a little bell that goes off when something is done to the best of your ability?

After taking out many stitches, I declare these done.  More embroidery for covers of small empty books.

I desperately want to do more to the bottom image but I think it is more expressive as is.  Now, off to cut paper for the pages inside.

    Hi Lauren,
    Nice to see your books and these embroidered future covers are wonderfu. Do you follow Alice Schlein’s adventures in book making at her blog, Weaverly? She’s linked on mine, if you haven’t seen it yet.
    I love to live a book making vicariously through adventures like hers and now yours! Thanks!
    Tommye

    These are just beautiful! Their simplicity does speak volumes. They would make want to pick up this book over and over!
