Winterfair Gifts finished

I finished these yesterday… and the second copy had to be rebound because the cover got so botched in the finishing that it couldn’t be fixed.

Straining the egg white:

As I said, I had to rebind this copy (in blue because I was out of white) and the gilding still did not come out as planned! I hope Ms Bujold likes it anyway.

Gilding on the second copy- I scrapped the house crest because it was giving me so much trouble

Finished at last! There are some things I would have liked to do better- chalk it up to a learning experience, I guess.
