Take a Stitch Tuesday and Crazy Patchwork Hand Bound Book

This weeks stitch for the Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge is Cloud Filling.
A friend showed me how to book bind last week, which I enjoyed and will do again. I finished the book ends by wrapping the boards with some crazy patchwork and hand embroidery. The book is quite floppy, but it is my first attempt and I now know to do it a lot tighter. [It is easy to open though which is handy for sketching etc] It is also my first attempt at hand embroidered crazy patchwork, although I have done machined crazy patchwork.
