Final Book Post!

 This is an old bit of applique and embroidery that has been sitting around for ages. It's a little bit of machine embroidery for the sunflowers and the leaves and a little bit of iron-on silk stencil for the butterflies. It will make a good end 'paper' for the book cover and use up another left-over.
 The cover is finished! Here the back flap is folded over to show the outside and the inside front cover. If you look closely you can see that the butterflies now have bodies and antennae.
                                              The front cover all top stitched and finished.

This is a bit fancy for a book cover!! Well, it is given the way I leave books lying around anywhere.
But it is gorgeous.

Thanks Mary, it's for a special book to commemorate our stitching group's 20th anniversary. We are each making one (7) all with very different contents and presentation.
