Weekly Challenge at Inspiration Aveue: "Needlework"

The challenge at Inspiration Avenue was "Needlework" and at first, I didn't think I would have anything to share.  I'm definitely not talented when it comes to needle and thread!  But, then I remembered my journals and the fact that they are woven together or rather sewn together with a length of ribbon!  So here's my entry for this week's challenge:


These little books are so much fun to mke, and the sewing potion's so easy anyone could do it- even me!
Be sure to stop by Inspiration Avenue to see what everyone has has created- I can't wait!
Cheers,
Stephanie

These books are gorgeous, and your paintings are delightful. Although they are super gorgeous, they still look hard to make to me. Love them, though.
