Another Fabric Book

In 2012 I swapped 6 x 6" fabric book pages with some of the ladies in the Fibre Fever Group. Until recently all the beautiful pages have been displayed on a wall in my sewing room. I have signed up for another swap in 2014, so now it was time to bind the pages. As you can see, my theme for the swap was My Favourite Book. The background is tissue paper bonded to felt, coloured with instant coffee (!!) and then stamped. The letters and clasps are painted grungeboard. The claps are sewn to the back of the book and I used velcro on the front to close the book.

Wet Felted Sheep

In August I was hiking in the Irish countryside; Connemarra, Burren, Blasket Islands - I even joined a food trail in Dublin.... It was a great holiday - beautiful landscapes, lovely people, food, whiskey and folk music - even the weather was nice! This is the front of the scrap book from the holiday -  wet felted sheep in a green landscape.
