Back in the studio

I've been so busy with projects that I haven't had time to post what I am doing.  So here is one of my favorite embroidered book bindings from the Love Sonnets from Shakespeare to Baltimore series.  

handmade book by Suzanne Coley
Then let not winter's ragged hand deface,
In thee thy summer, ere thou be distilled:
Make sweet some vial; treasure thou some place
With beauty's treasure ere it be self-killed.
That use is not forbidden usury,
Which happies those that pay the willing loan;
That's for thy self to breed another thee,
Or ten times happier, be it ten for one;
Ten times they self were happier than thou art,
If ten of thine ten times refigured thee:
Then what could death do if thou shouldn't depart,
Leaving thee living in posterity?
  Be not self-willed, for thou art much too fair
  To be death's conquest and make worms thine heir.
