Lots of stitchy happiness

Hello stitching peeps,

I took the Kathy Barrick workshop on making a journal.
We covered it in fabric, then we fill the pages whatever we fancy
Here is mine


One of the designs we had to pre-stitch


The first page I used scrap book paper, rubber stamps, and Kathy's signature,


Another pre-stitched design


And yet another one, there was one more design, but I didn't get that stitched, soon though
Other pages...


A couple pages dedicated to my sister, birthday card and a valentine that I took out of her scrap book from a long long time ago





It was a really fun day and to meet Kathy was a joy. She's soooo nice and soo creative.

While I was at Lynn's of Madison taking the class, I bought six frames.
Here are four I framed right away, like as soon as I got home












I took out a corner desk in my sewing room, so now I have lots more space to fill the walls. The only real space I have left


Well that's all for now
Happy stitching!!

So envious of your class with Kathy - way way cool! Your scrapbook is amazing! And wow - you can frame like nobody's business too - wonderful to display your work. PS we must be about the same age as your Valentine cards look very familiar to me!
