long stitch book binding

For you viewing pleasure, I thought I would share some of the latest books I've made. I'm addicted to this long stitch book binding style. There are numerous ways to stylize the stitching. I love the color combo with this one here, made with green and teal birds. It's so fresh.
This windowed exposed spine was a fun experiment. At first I was worried that the construction wouldn't be strong enough, but it is. I love the way you see the pages through the peek-a-boo window. Plus the black and white mums are fabulous! I wish I had an endless amount of this paper... for free. Now that would be awesome!

I've been playing with the idea of doing a book give away? What do you think? Yay or nay?
