Hooray! I finished mine today - and immediately gave it to my mom for her 84th birthday!
As quirky and lopsided as it turned out I really fell in love with it - I know I'll be doing more! You can't really see the spine in the pics - but it does have a narrow one to accomodate the width of the book. (PS - I posted about the ladder stitch - not sure if you saw - but its a pretty invisable way of joining the squares - I used 2 strands of embroidery floss for strength....) Okay - first the cover
then the back
and finally the inside - she can put abother book or even a paperback in when she's done with this one!
