It's done! My work in progress is now finished and I just listed it in my Etsy store. This is a fabulous, wanna hold it in your hand, kind of book. It is filled with fabrics, vintage and new (aged gently), and hand painted fabric. Also filled to overflowing with vintage lace...literally. You can see from the images all the laces spilling on the edges giving this book a very organic and romantic appeal. Lots of pockets to store treasured mementos, from love letters to photos of loved ones. I also added a number of fabric tags tied up in beautiful sari silk ribbon
Everything is done in fabric with little hand sewn touches added like french knots, and seed beads. Beautiful images and quotes printed on fabric or as an image transfer.
I apologize if any of these images are slightly blurry. With these cataracts I simply can no longer tell, and have been really struggling with photos. BUT! I had my appointment with the surgeon Tuesday and they can actually can fit me in for surgery on my first eye next Tuesday afternoon! So hopefully I am on my way back to better eyesight.
I've gotta say...I LOVE this book!
Today is so Spring like, in the high 60's and sunshine. Cold weather is coming back after the weekend, but today has been a breath of fresh air and tells us that soon, very soon, Spring will be here to stay a while longer.
Have a happy week my friends and count your blessings.
It's the little things in life you know.
