A trifle damp this morning.

This is what we woke up to this morning.   What a good thing my husband fixed those bars to lift the feet of our seats free of the water level.
Poor soggy neglected garden.   I suppose I'll get out there one day.

I have been working on the pages of my fabric book using photocopies of my own photos although this one was from a card.

Most of the photos are from a holiday to the Gower Peninsula and are full of happy memories.  I have learned quite a lot during the making of these pages and am now not happy with the dimensions of some of my pieces of fabric.  What a shame I couldn't see that earlier!

Most of the fabrics are scraps left over from a dyeing course many years ago, or were painted for other projects.

Another time I shall bond each fabric scrap in place before hand stitching.  I just can't get rid of all the wrinkles.   What a good thing I like the rustic look.

I have thoroughly enjoyed making it and am still considering adding small embellishments to some of the less interesting pages.    Now I must devise the cover.

Keep safe, and dry.

Oh Heather, this might be my favorite book yet! It's gorgeous!

Love this book. I think the wrinkles add to the hand made look.

Love the way your books heading Heather and definitely don't worry about the wrinkles, they are character lines. I hope your rain eases off soon.

Don't worry about how the process went Heather, it's all part of the journey and the lovely memories. Sorry you are so water-logged. Roll on the Spring and some drying weather. xx

Heather I had begun to think that you were not doing your books any more, it is so long since you said muchabout them. Pleased to see that you are still going strong. I love the book.

Like Pat, I had begun to wonder if you were still making your books, but I am so glad to see you are. These pages are lovely and I like the wrinkles too! They all help to add character to the pages.
