#21.Sarah Boblit - Little BooK SWAP!

Oh my! I'll quote Valerie Tups who just commented, "this swap gets better and better - if that is possible!". That's how I feel, as I continue receiving, uploading and sharing your books! wow.

From Sarah Boblit in Iowa, USA we have 5 books, and one is destined for me, thank you! Again, it is not necessary or required, but I am grateful if you wish to. Sarah made beautifully beaded fabric covers and hand bound paper into each one. They are different sizes and the larger ones are in the 5" size range. Sarah also did some incredible embroidery; I am really marveling at her handiwork. Take a look -click on the photo for more details:












In her note to me Sarah explained that the square book contains watercolor paper and the rest the books are filled with the kind of smooth paper she uses when drawing Zentangles (yes, she is multi-talented!). This is Sarah's 8th creative swap with me, so I should know : ^ ) Sarah also said in her note that she has always wondered how to pronounce my name, Lenna -with a hard "e" or a soft "e"?? It is pronounced with a soft "e" sound like "henna". The hard "e" sound is for Lena, another name. My name is a bit unusual, but I don't mind. In fact, I like it! Lenna is a family name, as you can see in the first paragraph of this linked page.

thank you, Sarah!

Sarah's gorgeous purple/blue book is in my hands, and, OMIGOSH! What exquisite design and workmanship. I've wanted to incorporate beads and embroidery into my work for some time, and this little book is a definite inspiration. I wish there were 50 of them so everyone could have one. Thank you Lenna, thank you Sarah.
