When I started making these lacy prayer books, I was going for simplicity, to let Holy Mary's image speak. But I keep picking up more laces, hankies, vintage dresses.... "oh," I think to myself, "this feels right here." And "Let's see how this would look." Actually, honestly, I don't think much at all. I can never remain in meditation for long without tons of thoughts cascading through my mind. But when I give myself to creating these sacred books, no thoughts. hmmmm
So, I went for simplicity with this smaller book. It's about 3x4" and all machine sewn, except for the pearly trim on the front cover. I enjoyed playing with my machines crazy quilt stitches. Had to be very careful when sewing back to back, that the stitches don't cover some important pieces of lace.
I used trims from vintage hankies on this little prayer book too.
