This boring reddish diary was transformed yesterday..
Into this beautiful butterfly covered tome.
While I was in book binding mode I also made a cover for DS Joe's ring binder.
This is not quite finished, I want to slip stitch the folds closed. I'll stash it away and it will do as a part of his birthday box in a couple of weeks. The fabric is some that was left over from his dragon quilt.
Who would believe you could do so much with off cuts of wadding? While I was having a sort out the other day I found all these bits and pieces, so they were patched together for use in my diary and Joe's file.
There is plenty left so I'll be using those as wadding for Mums Christmas place mats. She got wind of my plans and has approved, so now I'll have to go from thinking about it, to actually doing it! LOL I took a bit of time off my office job today to go and find some fabric for them. I found robins! Pictures soon.
1) Lunch, on the boss!
2) New fabrics to play with.
3) Two days off!!
