Today was the first day I was able to get in my sewing room though. I'm enjoying my journal making class so much I decided to sign up for the sequel - More Journalmaking for the Fiber Artist. The classes overlap two weeks so this week I had lesson 4 from the first class and lesson 1 from the second! Here are my journals from this week:
Above is lesson 4 of the first class. This journal is made out of a paper bag believe it or not! I picked a civil war print for the lining and used twine as a tie (because that was all I had in the house that worked - LOL!)
This one was made with some authentic japanese fabric I got at City Quilter in NYC a few years ago. It's been sitting in my stash waiting for just the right project. The picture doesn't really show it but this is a tri-fold journal.
I haven't done much quilting lately (even though I have a couple of deadline projects - yikes!) but sometimes its nice to have a little creative diversion to get the juices flowing again, isn't it? I keep seeing fabrics and thinking - "oh, that would make a gorgeous journal" I'm not sure what I am going to do with all these journals but I'm sure they will all find good homes. Speaking of which, my one year blog-aversary is coming up in a few days. I think a custom made journal might be a great prize for a giveaway - what do you think? Stay tuned for the details...
Have a pieceful day!
