Embroidery Journal, again

Here is the spine of the Embroidery Journal. I'm using buttons when I sew the signatures in. Yep. This might just take me the rest of my life and you know what? That's ok. It's like a perennial garden. You have to be patient till the plants take hold and start to grow.
I think the inspiration originally came from this book, Fabric Art Journals by Pam Sussman. It's an older book but good instruction and loads of ideas. Amazon isn't carrying it but you can get a used copy for about $18.00. Hedgehog pincushion not included. I'm generally not so frou-frou-y but there is good basic instruction in this book. Embellish as desired.

WOWSERS, it is so beautiful, and it looks SO tactile, I really want to reach into the minitor and stroke it, colours are amazing, an all round drool worthy piece!

Some time ago I unintentionally felted one of my favorite sweaters in the washing machine. I was so sad and put it away in a box as I was unable to part with it. Maybe I can restore it to life ....

Oh, you're going to have such a great time creating this book! (I've owned the Pam Sussman book for a while and have always love how well-written it is.)

I check that book out from my local library!
