These two lovely books are actually a June swap that Alis of Unlimited Textiles made for me. Alis has not been well, and was a bit late with her swap, and wanted to make up for it! Well, as you can see, she certainly did that handsomely! The larger Notebook at the back I will use for special Quotations I want to keep, and the little book at the front is a mini star book - it opens out into a star shape when you 'turn it inside out' when putting both covers together. You can then hang it from the loops at the top of the spine.
It is so pretty, completely made of painted watercolour paper and other fancy papers, with lovely little treasures adhered inside. It is approximately 3" x 4" and even has a 'V' paper clip on the front! I love it and thankyou again Alis.
July theme for the Quiltie (5" x 5") was Seasons - and this little beauty was made for me by Sandy, which as you see is Fall. Sandy used ultrasuede for the leaf and added loads of beads - what patience! Just gorgeous Sandy, thankyou again.
This is my interpretation of Seasons, which is A British Summer - Sunshine and Showers! That seems to be the constant forecast this Summer - every day we hear it - more of the sunshine and less of the showers please - that's what I say! I made this for June and she was delighted.
And finally..... Calendar Girls swap for July
This was our inspiration, provided by Pippa.
Sandy made this interpretation for me. It looks absolutely gorgeous, and I can't wait to get touchy feely with it (I've pinched the pic. from Sandy's Blog - hope she doesn't mind!) but I do know it is on its way.....
