What are you most proud of? I created a cloth, book-style binding, instead of using grommets and rings. It fits nicely on the bookshelf in my sewing room.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I was tempted to skip this lesson's project because I'm so anxious to start on the creative work of art that is the main project of this course. I'm so glad I didn't! I learned a lot about the decorative stitches on my machine, how to manipulate them to achieve different looks and now I have a handy reference for future use. My advice: Don't skip creating a Stitch Bible!

Thank You for the idea. When I first got my two latest machines I kept thinking I should do each stitch and save it somewhere! Yours is lovely.

I've been thinking about creating a stitch book but hadn't thought to create anything as nice as this. Thank you for the inspiration. This is awesome!
