a little sewing

i'm going to spend this afternoon doing a little sewing. i've got some book boards covered with arches textwove paper, and some watercolor papers folded and all ready for their make-overs into blank journals. i really enjoy the cutting and folding of the papers, and the gluing of the covers, but i must admit that the sewing is my favorite part. that's the part when everything comes together and suddenly you have a journal.....and it truly fascinates me every time!

I love getting everything all laid out and then putting it all together like pieces in a puzzle. You have a wonderful gift, darling :) I haven't thanked you in awhile for all of your sweet words. They truly mean ever so much to me :)

i'm sure that the sewing signifies the end of a fun creative process. do you find yourself thinking up what you're going to do next when you're sewing?

Hi Lori! I just love your journals! I agree with Paulette, your photo of supplies looks like art already! I see you joined the Play Date too, so happy to see you there. I know all your goodies will be so much fun to incorporate with the upcoming challenges. Happy Stitching!

Oh, I love that moment when suddenly a piece becomes a whole instead of a collection of parts.

Enjoy your sewing afternoon, and may it be a productive one...
