* Signature Two. Remains of the Day Journal

Click to play this Smilebox slideshow

The second signature is complete and sewn.  Remember, I thought I had too many pages?  Well, when the very vintage pages fell out here and there ... I have just the right amount.  No need to make another journal right away, Nancy!

I haven't sewn the signatures into the journal yet.  I did find my awl, needle and book binding thread.  I got these supplies for another project before I left Canada and never used them, so this is new for me.  The awl looks a tad fragile to me and I'm wondering if there are different 'grades' of awls for different projects.  Hope it works.

Tomorrow a friend is coming over for a play date.  We are going to make cards.  I'll keep you posted.  Probably won't get the journal finished until Sunday.  THEN ... I'm going to open the Erosion Bundle again and see if I've had any better results after sinking it in the fountain for just over a month.  I think art created from the contents is due in August.

Blogger seems to be back to normal function.  I was missing a post, however it has reappeared - I hope everything is back to the way it was on your blogs too.  Thanks for dropping by for a peek, and thanks to all of you who leave me such very special comments.  I adore them.   :o)
