More keepsake journals.

I've been really busy making for my Chrismas Fairs, more of Lillas banners which I love! Loads of little French themed purses, but most of all I am loving these Quilters keepsakes.
This one has lots of faded blue florals

                                                     and this one is in faded coffee and pink.

I like to imagine that it has been passed down from mother to daughter, there are layers of fabrics and lace that hold special memories and all stitched in many layers to represent years of repairs.

                                 On the first page is a needle holder, then a pocket and a quote.
                                 The next page has a tape measure and a pocket for bits of fabric.
                                 These two pages have pockets for ribbons, lace and  quilt labels.
                                  This is the back cover, I love the fabric, it was my last little bit.

                                   The next pictures are the inside of the pink and coffee version.

                                                       This last picture is the back cover.

 I've already started on some more as my Christmas fair is at Cowslip where there will be lots of Quilters around to buy them.    Trouble is I sometimes don't want to part with them.

I'll also be putting one in my Etsy Shop in the next couple of days but which one, please help me choose!!

Hope you are all busy with your creating and thank you all for your comments, they make me smile and I love every one I get.

Have a great week,
xox Angela.
