Plenty of stitching ....

I have been doing plenty of stitching these past couple of weeks. I am involved in another fabric book Round Robin with Dot, Linda and Sesga. Each month we make a page for each others book. I love working with fabric and really enjoy stitching. This week my book went to Dot for her page to be added to my book. I am looking forward to seeing what Dot creates for my book...she is the Queen of Embellishing. My book all finished and ready to be packaged off to Dot. The cover and a glimpse of some of the internal pages.

Inside the front cover (I love this page with its random strips and stitching).


Some Kaffe Fassett flowers adorn the first page. I did many a stitch on this page. Click to have a closer look.




Back of the KF flower page. Lots of stitching again and some KF circles for good measure.



Inside the back page a little pocket for any notes the girls want to leave me.
After looking back at these pages I have noticed that there is a bit of a floral/garden theme coming through in the pages. Initially I had started with a blue/green theme.... I dont know what happened, but thats half the fun, seeing what evolves.
I have started my knit up for Dneese ( Grrl&Dog).... lots of fun this freeform knitting. Might have a pic. of that next week too. Check out Grrl's blog to see what she is up to.
Bye for now and have a happy week .....

I love the KF flower page! Gorgeous stitching. Will the book still be with you when I visit this weekend? It would be wonderful to take a look at it. Lee xx

This book is the most beautiful thing I have seen in my whole life. I mean it! Maybe it is the floral theme....you know how I love flowers but I can't imagine how the girls will be able to add anything to your pages. Or do they add pages? I have no words for your stitching. It is just ART ART ART!!!!!
