Journals


I'm taking a journal making class from Sue B. I've made three journals - I was only going to make two but the signature pages I made first didn't match these first two journal so I made another cover. I think I'll give this one to my mother for Mother's Day. It has an upholstery weight fabric.


Here's the inside front cover and one of the pockets with tags.



Here's the second journal. It's made from fabric that I received from Vicki W. (thanks again, Vicki!) I used a small piece of copper to cover where I sewed on the velcro closure. I would have shown you inside photos but blogger only lets me upload one photo at a time now. Is anyone else having this problem? It's taking forever to do this post.




Here's the last journal. It's a variety of green and purple fabrics. I think it's my favorite.





Here's the last felted purse that I made for my blogiverssary give away. Lynda finally received it so I can show you a photo. And just a note about TIF for April. The theme is change. I have heard about change everywhere - presidential candidates are "for change", global climate change, change in the weather etc. etc. Actually, I like change. I have always believed in life long learning and continuing to strive to reach your goals. The only way you can do that is to change. So I'm still thinking how to design those thoughts into fiber. More later!

They are all beautiful but my favourite is the green and purple too.

As exciting as it was to see my fabric, I also love the green one! They all look great.

The green and purple one is my favourite too - its gorgeous.
And the photo doesn't do justice to the felted bag you were kind enough to send me - its really beautiful.

Yep, I agree, my favorite is the green and purple. I think it's fascinating how many of the people who were already on my "eye candy" blog list are in Sue's class! It's a lot of fun, and your journals are lovely.
