It's very difficult to sew through fabric that's been glued.

Agree - about mounting the gauze layers on a hoop, doing your embroidery, then gluing?  Are you worried about the tension of the gauze and embroidery?

Embrace the wabi sabi; go with the flow... try something and if it doesn't turn out how you like it, you can always paint over, collage over, remove it, cover it with something else, or go in a different direction.  A mistake doesn't have to be a mistake or a failure, creatively - it may just be a different slant, or a jumping point for another idea - a discovery of something new. The only way it can be a total failure would be if you cannot save it at all - namely if the book is actually obliterated in someway...

If the book is something you value and have a specific idea for, try out your idea on a different book first.
