    I totally love this! I recently visited two beautiful English gardens and would love to do a similar project. May I ask where you found such great garden quotes?

      Thanks Sandra! I just collect quotes and these were in my stash. Feel free to use these ones.

    This is totally gorgeous. You’d be able to lose yourself in all these pages, no problem. So much to enjoy.

    Beautiful! I just came across your work through a magazine and fell head over heels. I have only hand stitched one binding and it was a complete disaster as I use a Japanese Screw Punch and didn’t pay attention enough. It held together however it is pretty ugly.

    Absolutely love your book, both the pages and how the binding looks from the side! Very inspiring for both gardening and book making! Thanks for sharing!

    Oh my! I am so in love with all of your work. I have not long joined your 5 day challenge & am looking forward to that starting next month. I have been having a feast on this web site of all the delights. I am on the waiting list for the book club. So looking forward to that.
