I thought I'd have a sewing theme to my circle journal this time, my excuse..... ahem, reason being that I'm continuing the theme of my first dare for the DCM which was cards with "real" sewing on them.
Okay, you know how it is when you're trying to think of a good idea for something like this, they all stay firmly locked in the Good Ideas Vault? So I confess, I've just recycled an old one, but I think it'll give enough scope to all those in the circle.
So anyway, the first photo is the front cover of the book, lots of "real" sewing around the papers and to fix the ribbon on, then some doodled stitches added for good measure.
Then just a glimpse of the intro page.............
And this is my own first page - I'd planned to do a couple more pages before it went out, but someone stole the time away from me, you know how it goes, so I've "reserved" the next double page to do when the book comes home again. At least that gives plenty of time to think what those pages will be for.
and now just a glimpse of the signing in instructions.....
The little bobbins fold out to give space for the circle members to write a message.
And finally the back cover - which says it all really!
Now comes the waiting, for each book to arrive for me to add something to, and eventually for the whole circle to be completed and our books back with their originators - I wonder what everyone will put in mine, and will they be happy with what I do in theirs - it's all so scary!
