Taste of Lace

There are several ways to create a journal and for me it is all about
the most beautiful and exotic and vintage fabrics
that I can draw together
along with
lace fabrics and a selection
of different

new and vintage

and then it is about the art of

drawing it all together

and adding LOTS of embellishments
to create a totally harmonious

This fabric journal will very shortly be available
My Etsy Shop.
Along with all the different laces it will contain some beautiful printed linen,
brocades, vintage curtain fabric, scrim, silks, and furnishing fabrics,
sari ribbon and silk ribbon
(a gift from dear Pat Winter at
mostly all of which have been coffee dyed.

Some pages are totally crazy patchworked
there are many pages that have been left
blank for journalling
your own thoughts etc.

I would like to mention that there is a wonderful giving person over at
who would really appreciate a little support from
all bloggers at present as her dear
husband faces surgery.
Cindy has so very kindly organised a series of seminars to help all bloggers
with all aspects of blogging.
So go and visit her blog to learn all about them.
I can vouch personally of the wonderful benefit you will gain by reading these.

Hope your weekend is going well and that you are finding it fulfulling
in every way!

Wishing you love and happiness!
