Today I started folding book number 4 and decided to try a different angle. Because I decided to feature my pink hollyhock , it only seemed logical to run the thread vertically This book will open more like a scroll than an accordion book . All this thinking meant a slow start ( more stitching needed) but I hope this one will develop into something promising. Inspiration photos below from my garden.
