    I needed a new book for watercolor and ink so I gutted an old Nancy Drew mystery and put in my own sections of watercolor paper. We had a two hour car trip today so I sewed it as we drove and found a new use for the bright pink lap desk! I needed to pierce holes in the spine of the book so I flipped the desk over the pierced the holes into the padded section of the desk. It worked very well and I love the “stabbing” with this particular book title!

    I absolutely LOVED Nancy Drew as a kid! I think that book would also work really well using Beth McIraith’s Bow-tie techniques. We had a good time at the workshop Saturday, but missed you, of course.
