The ladies are going to track the quilts and other fiber projects they complete in 2011 so I thought I use the excuse to make a small journal to keep my finished projects in. My very first ATC was my choice for the cover embellishment. I'll be making my interior pages very soon.
I did find out from one of the students that the bead with the charter has been sewed on upside down! I'll fix that today. She told me the bead said LOVE, and also told me the languages that are on the paper I used for my book covers. Very interesting stuff for sure.

While I was up stretching my legs yesterday from sewing I stumbled upon a section in JoAnn that I'd not seen with thin 40 gauge metal sheets and strips. They had many color finishes and I just couldn't keep from picking up one of them to experiment on.
It is thin enough to sew threw and I'm going to try heating it to alter the color.
We're expecting possible snow and sleet later today
so it's a good day for keeping warm and getting some sewing done.
