Finally ….. A Journal Cover made.

I have joined in on Judith’s 'EARLY BIRD CHRISTMAS CRAFTING'

and she suggested we organise ourselves and get a journal and put in names of who we plan to make Christmas gifts for. Well….I was rather busy sewing a Wedding quilt for my son and his fiance for their wedding and just didnt get around to making a nice journal cover.

Ummm…..I was going to use this lovely one that Barb sent to me…

Barb's Journal Cover

I love it but felt it had to be made by me.

So I finally got myself organised and made this one for my Christmas gifts list.

Journal Cover

I was given some Caring Heart squares from the Craft Forum and decided to use this one for the cover. I love it :)

So now I got to do some writing and put some names in there.

Judith suggested getting a big box or basket to store all the things that we make in and I have got a cardboard box from something ages ago and have actually got it for this purpose. You see I started doing things earlier and then come to a standstill due to other things having to be made etc.

So now I am doing some lovely stitchery's and these will be the centres for these lovely doily's

that Dawn made and had for free from the Among the Gum Trees blog with the Mother’s Day specials.

Sooooo I am getting there and its not even half way thru June :) It’s looking good for me to have some finishes for June :)

Hugs to all………Vicki

Hi Vicki! How fabulous that you are making an early effort to create for Christmas before the rush begins. How I wish I could be so organized! I love how your journal cover turned out. I think you are going to be the most organized person that I know. Much luck in your endeavor!
