Hi peeps, I'm beginning to find my way back to whatever my "normal" life was/is. It has been one heck of a journey this year. Ups and downs one after another. I'm sure you have experienced the same but I for one am hoping, or looking forward to a year of more ups than downs if possible. Anyway, I promised to share some of the projects I actually did get to complete during this wild ride I call life. This fiber book was inspired by the gorgeous ones on Pinterest (where else?) It was made for a special friend who enjoys them as much as I do.....and she has quite a sense of humor so I played that up a bit as you will see.
This is the cover. I used a variety of vintage laces which she loves as well.
The first page has her photo as a little girl, page three has a poem
Page four has a photo I took of her in class when a piece of fabric stuck to her glasses and looked like a birds beak. It was too funny and she loves birds, so.....
Page five features another poem.
So that was one gift I did finish and now for the other item, a purse for a dear woman who just received it. This is a bad photo but the only one I took because I was in a hurry to catch the mail lady.
I have a couple projects almost completed. I will be working on them for the next few days and watching the snow fall curled up in my comfy chair with plenty of caramel spiced cider and tea by my side.
Although this Christmas was overshadowed by the loss of my Mother in law, I couldn't help but enjoy the thrill of watching Megan enjoy her new tablet. DS got a kick out of her tuning everything out to explore her new toy. We had her open it early just in case she wanted a different one, she wouldn't have to deal with mailing it back to exchange. Luckily it was the one she wanted.
I spent a few hours at mom's Christmas Eve/day. We shared a pot of tea together and exchanged gifts while reminiscing over past Christmases. She is ready for a trip to St. Joe so we may take a ride in a week or two. I can't wait to go back to Kalamazoo and stay at the castle on the hill B&B. I will take plenty of pictures. We already talked about having breakfast on the large front porch overlooking the neighborhood. I know she can hardly wait either. Of course we will have to make a stop at the confectionery chop before checking in,LOL.
Well, I had better get moving. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and if you go out to celebrate New Years, be careful and enjoy!
