Madly Stitching


 I'm off to Level 2 Stitch Class next week and I haven't quite gotten all my homework done yet. So today I have been chained to my sewing machine, stitching away. These are the first two pages of a book I'm making in the style of Cas Holmes

The book is about starting over and not worrying about if everything is perfect but just going forward from where you are right now. So I am celebrating my imperfections and actually it was very freeing not worrying about every little stitch. I had a plan for the binding but it didn't work out so now I think I will do it by hand with a blanket stitch and raised chain band. Of course I have plenty of time to do that, NOT.
