Fabric Journal Page

I have been planning to make a fabric journal now for some time and today I have made a start. This being my first will be small (not sure how many pages) but the pages measure 6" x 7.1/2" and each page can be completely different or they can follow a theme - of colours, of story, of memorabilia etc. in fact anything!!!. I shall see where this takes me.
Ohhhhh I think it is a bit "me" - have to venture out more!!! - but it is such a lovely way to use all the things you have in your collection of fabrics, threads, trims, braid, beads etc.
I have started with gold silk, then scrim, maroon silk velvet, rust dyed silk, mesh, beads, braid, mohair (from goats - just love using this!) and rayon thread for embroidery - just put together in a collage!

Unfortunately the mohair colour has not come out well at all - it is a deep olive green.

  11. Hi there! Found you off of Judy's blog. I've been looking down the right side at all your wonderful work as I slowly work back through the posts. Love your work, just gorgeous... all the rich colors and your style... definitely a favorite!

    I'll be interested to see how your fabric art journal turns out, that first page is lovely. Maybe I'll get inspired to try it too just by following along and seeing what you come up with... it's been something I've wanted to try, just haven't stepped out of the box yet.

  12. Ainda estou percorrendo seu blog e achando mais maravilhas! Eu não trabalho com tecido, mas fico encantada de ver suas obras de arte!

  13. Is using an R4i good for you nintendo DSi? What brand microsd to use for r4 or r4i?
    An R4i is a carte de visite where you can download DS roms from the internet and wager it onto the R4i and perform upon games without buying them. (This is in spite of people who don't recall what it is)
    Resolution it ruin your dsi in anyway

    I be aware it's interdicted but oh well!
    Where can I get an R4I card in compensation nintendo dsi in Canada online? [url=]supercard dstwo[/url]

    Without doubt I went to many sites to see if I could procure an R4I card because of my nintendo dsi in behalf of many games so I wouldn't receive to squander loads on money on games and I went to varied sites to procure it but it was all in US,pounds,euros currency and so on and no Canadian currency and was wondering if anybody knows a good legit placement where I can take one of these in Canadian currency? When using the r4i will any mark of micro sd car-card work? I most categorize Sandisk or Kinston, I wanna come in sure I can avail oneself of other brand 2GB micro sd card, b/c I bring about some cheaper, thankx. I wanna recognize if any trade mark drive move up with r4 and r4i.


Thank you so very much for stopping here to say hello and to see what I have been creating. I really treasure each and everyone of you for your comments. It is so appreciated....Suzy
