Oh No not another book.

I can't help it, it's taken me over. My love affair with fabric books can't be stopped.

I love them and wanted a sketch book/journal to keep all my thoughts and inspiration.

This is how it turned out.
I've made so many mistakes in the construction of this book, but I am learning as I go along.

There are lots of pages for keeping notes, each one edged with lace and fabric.
Of course there had to be some little pockets to keep my treasures.




I'll be filling this book with notes and sketches and inspiration.

You can see it again later as I go along. The next one won't have so many mistakes and maybe I can sell it in my Etsy shop.

My head is full of another project so I'm off to start that. See you soon!

Hi Angela,
I love your book! They are very time consuming. I made one for the pastor's wife for her birthday and didn't even get a picture of it! Silly me!
Thanks for sharing your beautiful book.
Hugs,
Sonya

You need to take your beautiful book and sit at Dawlish :-) Couldn't see much because of the sea mist :-)Not even Exmouth.
But lots of inspiration as we were the only one's there. :-) xxx
