The Book

I am doing the free online workshops that came as part of the deal when I purchased both Lynda and Carol's book "Stitching the Textured Surface" and Maggie Greys book "Stitches Straps and Layers".
Lynda had the first workshop and she gave instructions on how to make what she has called a "Doodle book".
It is made from baby wipes and paper and card.
This is my finished book.
The cover--------------



Standing up---------------



and laying out flat-----


An artsy view of the open book



And some of the signatures----------




and more-----------




the last one.





I am quite pleased with this and the fact that I finished it is a plus also because I usually get all the info and do all the samples and then I don't go through to the end.
Now to start on Maggies lesson.

I am itching to get on with this, I thought they would make good Christmas presents for grand daughters of a certain age. I am still trying to get the things done here though, after a trip like ours it all takes time and mares are foaling all the time too. AND its got horribly hot!!
Moan moan.

Your book is wonderful Doreen and I love the colours you have used. I have read the instructions but not started yet, so will be way behind everyone else. Right now I am pleased I can leave you a comment - this wretched machine is driving me mad and very often it wont let me leave a comment.

Lovely book Doreen. The pastels will make a lovely background for someone ...if they can stand to draw or write on such beautiful pages.
