Book du jour - sewn patterns

The stitched lines are a no-brainer - though it must be said that they were likely to be wobbly till I got the idea of punching the holes before stitching the line. The stitch is running stitch that doubles back on itself; the thread ends get tucked into the spine area.

That idea of pre-punching led to the circles -- punched several pages at once, which I'm filling in in different ways ... letting things happen.

This is a way of "using up" the experiments of water-soaked books made several weeks ago for the "flood library".
