I was lucky enough to be able to sit in my garden enjoying a cup of coffee and then lunch. I can not stop thinking about how different it is across the other side of the world. EDIT: I wrote most of this post this afternoon. Having just seen the news, my life seems so very easy. I feel so sad for all of those affected and the effect it will have on their lives for ever.
This week I have made a few more journals, using up work that had already been started. The first is a felt covered journal. I recently acquired a book on felt making. It inspired me to get the half made piece out and finish it off then embellish with machine embroidery.
This is how it looked before I worked on it.
And a view of the insides. I have used vintage silk and a serviette that I was lucky enough to receive from a friend.
Using sari ribbons and a few strips of fabric from my Anna Belinda fabric I created these two. The first one is a fat 3' square notebook designed to fit snugly into the box. It has watercolour paper that I have aged with coffee and decorated with vintage silk fabric and used a paper serviette with cheery tree blossom.
This notebook is slightly bigger than the one above and I have used various snippets of Liberty prints on the pages
I had a surprise parcel this week and in it was this beautiful notebook along with some other goodies from Linda. Thank you so much.
Finally notebook ten approximately 2" x 3". Made from vintage table linen given to me by a good friend. The pages are plain and printed papers.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and the coming week.
