The hills are invisible which is a daft comment as I can't see the trees on the Common across the road and they must be all of 50/60 yards away.
The first two covers have been glued, folded, trimmed and pressed - see photo on left.
I made a card template for punching holes in the text pages and in the two covers and bound them together using the best length of kumihimo braid which was just long enough. The thick kumihimo is clearly far too thick. I will try plaiting some fine ribbon otherwise we are in a long wait while I make some more fine braid.
