boro stitching

Hello!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. I needed to take a break from my creative work. Funny though, I found that I missed cataloging my adventures. So, here I am with my newest crafting adventure, boro stitching. Google it. The images are so yummy!

I’ve been wanting to take this class with Jody Alexander for some time, but my schedule never matched. Jody is an artist, bookbinder, librarian, and teacher who lives and works here in my home town of Santa Cruz, California. Here is her current listing of classes.

I’ve taken her book binding class and fell in love with book binding all over again. Recently, she published a book¬†with Blurb Books, The Boro Aesthetic: Books, Bags, Zakka and Zokin. Well, I couldn’t resist and it has been AWEsome! Here are some of my pages from the book I did following her easy step by step instructions.

 

I’m going to try a boro bag next. Drop me a line and let me know what have you been up to this week. I’m super interested in your crafting and adventures.
