Sew busy!

The final step involves doing a woven, hand-sewn stitch that connects all the signatures together. It makes a nice design on the spine of the book, and is a very simple in and out technique.

It is a great quiet activity to do while visiting or listening to music or a book on CD. (I find I always remember things better when my hands are busy as I listen. Maybe that's why Jesus taught, not just sitting in a synagogue, but out fishing, walking, and ministering with his disciples. Hmmmm...what could we take from that lesson today?)

I know I will think of the conversation we had yesterdy each time I pick up my finished book!
