Simply Neutrals No. 46 - Little Felted Lace and Silk journals

Dear friends
some of you may have already seen my post on fb
about these little felted lace journals.

 So here on my blog you can get to see more close up images
of the artwork

 where you can get a closer look at the layers,

 the stitching used with my sewing machine,



 some of the vintage laces used
and the silk tops over which I have
embellished with embroidery machine stitching.


 The inside pages were left blank with botanical
stamping and washi tape
used to add interest!


 These little journals are now all sold 
I am in the process of creating a new four
which will be in my Etsy shop
sometime this week so keep checking!

I'm linking this post to Simply Neutrals Tuesday
which is open for the whole of the month of

Wishing you all a wonderful week my friends!
Thank you all so very much for your continued support of my artwork!

Love and hugs, Suzy xxx



  1. Hello dear Suzy
    I allways love your journals and I dream to make one about Virgin Mary for a long time. I have all I need, except time!!!! But I know i'll make it for her!
    Hugs and kisses

    1. Thanks so much Joelle! I wish you had the time to create a Virgin Mary book!
      Once your start you will find it hard to put it down!
      Hugs and kisses!

  2. Suzy, these are SO beautiful I would hesitate to write in them. Yet, that's their purpose, eh? I Love how you've added the words; it only adds to the poignancy.

    1. Thanks dear Sandra for your kind comment! Yes the words do help to evoke the feeling of the themes!

  3. Of course they sold! How could they not? I love the simplicity of the insides too, although I know I could never actually write in them.

    1. Thank you Mary Ann for your comment! I've so enjoyed creating these and love the little stamped pages too!

  4. Hi Suzy, each one of these is exquisite and they look so gorgeous together, especially the spines. I hope you are out enjoying this gorgeous sunny weather. I am pruning my roses this week. I have just had a visitor from the US - we hadn't seen each other for 35 years! Now I have to get back to catching up with everything.
    Love and hugs,
    Jesse XX

    1. Thank you Jesse for visiting! Yes your lovely lace fabric made their way into the creation of these!
      I hope you have managed to complete your rose pruning. The weather has been perfect for the job for sure!!!
      Lovely to catch up with very old friends - hope it was a special time!
      Love and Hugs,
      Suzy xxx

  5. OMGosh Suzy!!! These are absolutely exquisite!!! Your artwork with these journals totally blows my mind,dear friend!Really everything you make blows my mind- you are so very talented!!
    Did you do the felting on a machine or by hand? I ask this because, I was gifted a felting machine about 6 years back, and I have yet to use it, or even look at it- a shame for sure, but maybe something to do this fall?
    i Adore your work dear friend and always look forward to visiting with you!
    Sending lots of love and hugs,Jackie

    1. Thanks so very much dear Jackie for your lovely words!!!!!
      I felted the layers on my felting machine. I simply love to use it this way! And a piece can be created quite quickly - well at least this part!
      Thanks so much for appreciating my artwork dear friend! I do hope you are completely back to "normal", in fact better now since your surgery!
      Love and blessings to you!

  6. Suzy,
    These are JUST gorgeous! as are all your creations! soon....soon I will be getting to my new sewing machine and sewing creations. not sure what, but something!!!

    1. Haha Lanette! So what sewing machine did you purchase? I had to very recently buy a new one also as my 10 year old Pfaff which I was sew in love with died on me and they don't manufacture parts for that one now so sadly I had to outlay many dollars for a new one and am still getting used to it. Can't wait to see what you create. Let me know when you do dear friend!

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
