This is just a quick post to show you the last of my books for my next fair.
The piece of blue fabric was an ofcut found in a little shop in Devon. I love the soft blue.
I've added some machine embroidery, hand stitching and pearls.

 Some of the pages are fabric and some  hand made paper for journalling.
The rose on the cover is made with silk chiffon sari ribbon.
For the fabric pages I have used some linen napkins, I love the fringes!

I have stayed with the same fabrics throughout just adding different lace and trims.

The thread is a hand dyed variagated cotton

Again I am pleased with how this has gone together.
'Practice makes perfect' so I'll keep trying.

I'm doing some chores in my Mouse House so pop across and see my progress.
Enjoy your weekend.
xox. Angela.

Hi Angela, The fabric is lovely and you've created a fantastic journal with it. I always love how you combine hand and machine stitching.
Have a great Sunday, dear :-)!
