Meandering Book Swap

I have made a 3"x 3" book for a swap Ruth was holding in the Hinges group at Milliande. I have seen beautiful art done on tea bags, since I am a coffee drinker I decided to use used coffee filters.

I fitted and adhered filters to old book pages. The pages were inked. Then I drew and painted coffee pots with a saying about coffee on the pages. I sewed the book together in a meandering fashion and off it went to Julka in Canada.
