Bookmaking - Album 2

I've been making another book, another album for Emma's step Gran.
I don't have a sewing frame, so I just used the edge of the desk.

For the ends, I cut up an artists canvas board [I got some in a sale at the supermarket] and covered it with white cotton fabric [& wadding]. The fabric was deocorated [before covering the boards] with a photo I printed onto a heat transfer sheet [T- shirt transfer] and two strips of lace. The lace was held in place with Raised Chain Stitch - the foundation stitches were in two colours [I had stitched them too far apart, so stitched in between with a different colour - it looked quite attractive without the chain stitch]. I also stitched a few French Knots on the lace and all around the photograph.
