First book of 2012.

After buying some pretty fabrics from Petra Prins from the Netherlands during Cowslip Christmas Fair I couldn't wait to start on another book for a Quilter.

This book has three signatures and a total of 24 pages.

                     The front cover needs a little more adding,
                     I'm still thinking about that.

                              I love the colour of this ribbon,
                              it was used to tie a Christmas present.
                              I've stitched '' Love to Quilt'' along one piece
                              and a heart motif along the other.
                              It's used to tie the pages together.




Lots of lace and trims along the edges of the pages.




Inside the front cover and a pocket for 'keepsakes'.




Quotes.....




Pockets.....




A place to keep needles.....




Lots of blank pages for journaling....


Almost finished just a few special things to make to put in the pockets.

I'm ready now to start on the next book as a teaching aid in my classes.
It has to be a two day workshop so needs to be a simplified version.

Hope you are all busy creating your own treasures.

Have fun!!!
